Volcanoes have a natural Relation to hot Baths: Thus Vesuvius had the Biae of the Ancients in its Neighbourhood, and Iceland is full of Springs naturally very hot, bubbling up like a boiling Pot, so that Meat has been dressed therein. This mixture of hot Waters, and eternal Snows, is very extraordinary.

John Anderson, ‘A description of Iceland and Greenland’, Penny London Post or The Morning Advertiser, 1 June 1747, p. 1.
