Grave, as before, and about three feet deep; coffin scarce discernible; bones nearly gone; nothing but the blade of a smaller knife than those heretofore mentioned, but of the same shape, and some pieces of rusty iron, which seemed to have been nails[1]with large heads.[1] Concerning the nails of chests, or coffins of wood, see Stowe's Survey of London, fol. 178, edit. 1633. See also a paper on the same subject in Collectanea Antiqua, vol. iii, p. 19.- C.R.S.
