William Stewart Rose in Venice - December, 1817

from Letters from the North of Italy, Addressed to Henry Hallam, Esq., in Two Volumes , page 142:

[Letter XLVII, Vol. 2] 

 

The repose of Venice, a few nights ago, was fearfully disturbed. At about one in the morning, cannon were heard, the drums beat the general, and troops assembled from all parts. The first fear was that of a revolution; but this was soon changed for another, somewhat less alarming. The cry of fogo! was soon heard in all directions, and a pyramid of flame which burst out at no great distance, confirmed the truth.
