Ætna and Vesuvius

IT is very probable that Mount Vesuvius near Naples, and Mount Ætna in Sicily, form but different portions of one chain of Mountains that passes under the sea and the Isle of Lipari; for, whenever one of these Volcanos has a great eruption, it is observed, that the other, and the Volcano in the Isle of Lipari, throw out more flames than ordinary. This remark is made by Longuerue.
