Thanks for sharing the Orwell passages. I felt as if I was in one of those mines. What a great writer.

I loved your comment on how the pamphlet does not explain the hint of mystery of the colliery.

John Ptak

Thanks very much, Elizabeth. Orwell was a powerful writer, a great observer, and usually got a lot of stuff right. Road to Wigan was tremendous; Down and Out is terribly good too; Keep the Aphidistra is another. Excellent man.
