1969, George Allan England, The greatest hunt in the world:
- “A bit airsome, sir.” Airsome, indeed! The tired old ship, unable to advance in the teeth of such frenzy, “ burned down” for the night; which is to say, stopped and reduced steam. Her boilers needed cleaning, too, and behold the opportunity.

- New Venice was nothing close to hot or even warm, but outside was certainly airsome, and the atmosphere was as solid as a hall of mirrors.
