Excerpt from On Some Ancient Battle-Fields in Lancashire and Their Historical, Legendary, and Aesthetic Associations

The anglo-saxon Chronicle records that, in the year 685, it rained blood in Britain, and milk and butter were turned into blood. Of course, educated persons do not believe this now; but our conventionally educated predecessors did, and their conduct was sensibly in?uenced by such belief. The Chinese think them selves much superior personages, in very many respects, to the barbarian European, yet the following para graph went the round of the papers during May, in the present year: The Kaiping coal mines have been closed in deference to the opinion expressed by the Censor, that the continued working of them would release the earth dragon, disturb the manes of the empress, and bring trouble upon the imperial family.
