Warby’s Daughter Scalded

The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser

22 September 1810

On Thursday last an infant daughter of Mr. J. Warby, of Prospect Hill, was so severely scalded as to leave but little hope of the unfortunate child's recovery.

This dreadful accident was occasioned by the upsetting of a large pot of boiling water, which had a few moments before been   taken off the fire, and unguardedly left on the open floor.
