The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 245

From that sea is a journey of three days as far as the great hills out of which comes a river wherein was abundance of precious stones from the Earthly Paradise. And there is not a drop of water therein, and it goes along with a great storm thence as far as the sandy sea, three days in the week, and thenceforward no one can describe it till it comes again. And during the four other days of the week men are gathering those stones; and thus it is in every single week for them.
