The entire surface within these foundation-stones was strewn with hot ashes and about in the centre, from end to end, and on the side farthest away from the lane were the remains of a human being, but so charred, and so nearly consumed, that it required a second examination to sat isfy one's self that they were human remains. The head and neck were gone, both arms and both legs were entirely consumed, bones and all. The spinal column and the shrivelled and charred muscles of the back and some of the viscera, charred and contracted beyond recognition, alone were seen.
