On tues Day the 14th of september they were Only i l inches from him and yet it took them nearly two Days longer before they were Able to reach Bun although their exertions were incessant and directed with tie utmost professional skill. Very minute the ground was giving Way and it sometimes took them Sinany hours to repair the damage Hal a single moment had produced. Besides they Tell it necessary to proceed with the utmost caution when they approached Dufa Vel Tor there was great reason to fear that whenever a communication Shou a be made be tween the Bottom of the Well and the gallery in which they were working the mass of Sand above his head would fall Down und perhaps suffocate him even As it were before their Al length about two o clock a Tho nor Niue of Friday the 16lht of september the miners succeeded m effecting a Small opening into Ibe Well just behind the shoulders of Detavel who shouted for Joy at seeing them.
