    An extract from the 'MS. Journal of the Bristol Nursery Library' reports on the observations of 'Mr. Mackintosh, contractor for the government works at Stonehouse Point, Devon' relative to the burning strength of the sun's rays when concentrated by the circular windows of a diving bell, even when deep under water.
