At six o'clock in the evening, M. de Swedenborg, who had left the room, returned, with a look of consternation on his pallid face, and said that 'at that very moment a fire had burst out in Stockholm, at the Sudermalm, and was rapidly spreading its ravages in the direction of his own home. He said: Number is that which brings what is obscure within the range of our knowledge, rules all true order in the universe and allows of no errors.
