Abstract

About the middle of July, 1877, I had an opportunity of paying a visit to the thermal spring, near Southport, discovered not very many years ago by some splitters who were at work in the neighbourhood. Mr. Graves, who accompanied me, and who had kindly made all necessary arrangements for the expedition, had once previously visited the spot; and his general local knowledge was of great service in enabling us to find it without much difficulty.
