The Marietta Intelligencer, January 13, 1859

The second daughter of Prof. E. B. Andrews, a little girl of about five years, was severely burned this morning by her clothes taking fire.  She had locked herself in a room, and, as is supposed, in playing with the fire, her clothes ignited.  Her screams aroused the family, but as two doors were locked, the room could be entered only by a very circuitous route.  Before anyone gained access to it, she had unlocked a door and gone out, and was found out doors.  The burns are on her back and shoulders, and quite severe.
