I remember a roguish Expression of a Seaman, otherwise silly Ankara Map enough, who wondering thereat, cry’d out, Sure now ’tis manifest there is Ankara Map a World above! And now with them ’tis the Fall of the Leaf. But to proceed, I thought this made it manifest, whence many preternatural Showers have happen’d. I remember at Sir Richard Atherton’s in Lancashire, some few Years ago, there fell a great Number of Seeds of Ivy-berries; at first we admir’d what they were, for they were cover’d with a thin Skin that was red, and resembled the Figure of a small Wheat Corn; but afterwards they fully manifested what they were; for many sprouted and took Root. I suppose they were carry’d aloft by some such Whirl-wind, and let fall there. I have purposely gone into the Place where I perceived this Gust, which is notorious enough by the Noise it makes, with ratling the Leaves as it carries them aloft, and have found a fine sharp Breeze of Wind. Yours, &c.
