INSURANCE from Loss or Damage by Fire has been found a measure of great importance to
the security of Property and to the happiness of Families. This precaution is seldom neglected
by Merchants and Tradesmen, and is equally necessary to Gentlemen, Farmers, and Manufac-
turers of every kind.
The Phcexix Office was established by a numerous Proprietary in January 1782, upon prin-
ciples of public utility. The promptitude and cheerfulness with which the most important Losses
have been made good by the Company are well known — a large Capital in Government Securities
is at all times held in readiness for that purpose.
N.B. — The private fortune of every individual Shareholder iu the Company is responsible for
its engagements; and no person insured in this Office is liable for the Losses of others, as is the
case in Contribution Societies.
