'The Fairy Land of Science'

Here’s another quotation; this time from a writer called Arabella Buckley

“Now, do you believe in, and care for, my fairy-land? […] Can you picture tiny sunbeam-waves of light and heat travelling from the sun to the earth? Do you care to know how another strange fairy, ‘Electricity’, flings the lightning across the sky and causes the rumbling thunder?”

Arabella Buckley, The Fairy Land of Science (1879)
