1787 James St. John _Letters from France to a gentleman in the south of
Ireland_ 8 Jul. (1788) I. 192 But it has been proved to demonstration,
that water is composed of the bases of vital air and of inflammable gas;
that is to say, of oxygen and hydrogen: Consequently, the greater part
of our planet originated from these two seemingly elementary substances.
