    • 1860, Horace Marryat, A residence in Jutland, the Danish Isles, and Copenhagen
      [] the birth of Christ, when these long valleys [] were still extensive lakes, sloppings of the great deluge, not yet dried up in time to pass away from the evaporation of the sun's rays and the labour of mankind.
