stoweboyd commented on the word altumal
'Perhaps to some degree it may lie in the altumal simplicity of our diet, a diet produced by no effort of our own, and served up at stated intervals; whereas on land is a frequent subject of consideration, and the gastric juices are therefore perpetually solicited: but no doubt a more important factor on shore is the presence of an entirely different sex, of the excitation of other appetites, and the appearance of of a whole new set of social and even moral values.'
