Science Quotes by Thomas Savery (1 quote)
I have known in Cornwall a work with three lifts of about 18 feet each, lift and carry a 3½-inch bore; that cost forty-two shillings a day. I dare undertake that my engine shall raise you as much water for eight-pence as will cost you a shilling to raise the like with your old engines in coal pits.
