Give us grace and strength to forbear and to persevere.
Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind.
Spare to us our friends, soften to us our enemies.
Bless us, if it maybe, in all our endeavours.
If it may not, give us the strength to encounter that which is to come
that we may be brave in peril, constant in tribulation,
Temperate in wrath and in all changes of fortune,
and, down to the gates of death,
loyal and loving to one another.
(This is St Gaudens' plaster model of the memorial)

In the old town, volunteers had water buckets to hand and ran with them to the fire to join a human chain from the fire pond - there were several around the town - to the location of the fire. The owner of the house would pre-designate a friend to help save as much of the contents as possible, dashing into the burning building to rescue the most valuable pieces, as the water gang poured water onto the fire in the hope of saving the dwelling.
