Comments: This is a more popular presentation of subjects dealt with in Tyndall's classical work, The glaciers of the Alps, (1860), in which, through the direct application of the doctrine of regelation he had arrived at a satisfactory explanation of the nature of glacier motion. In the introduction Tyndall gives an eye-witness account of a "breaking out" of the Margelin See on the Aletsch Glacier.

I can say on my honnour, that if Spielberg, Jackson or Lucas, signed a contract with me for the most incredible Spiritual Byzantine blockbuster Saga of all times in Motion pictures, I will come to your shop in person when we will release the 1st movie of the 1st trilogy among the 22 and I will give you back this money :-) Truly, in God! May the Mother of God and all Saints of Mount Athos bless you for ever and ever. - J-M S.
