- "Deep Down, a Tale of the Cornish Mines", R.M. Ballantyne.
Up, to save yonder sluice; that will save yonder lode; that again yonder farm; that again some other lode, some other farm, far back inland, but guessed at instantly by men who have studied from their youth, as the necessity of their existence, the labyrinthine drainage of lands which are all below the water level, and where the inner lands, in many cases, are lower still than those outside.- "Prose Idylls", Charles Kingsley.
