Melville's research on his new book, similar to The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power:
Since it was discovered that whale oil could light our cities in ways never achieved before, it created global demand. It has pushed man to venture further and further into the deep blue unknown. We know not its depths, nor the host of creatures that live there. Monsters. Are they real? Or do the stories exist only to make us respect the sea's dark secrets? The question both vexes and excites me and is the reason I've written you a second time to request a meeting. A conversation with you, sir, I believe will serve me well for the novel I intend to write, currently entitled Moby Dick.
And the new black oil:
Herman: Incidentally ...I heard a man from Pennsylvania drilled a hole in the ground recently and found oil. That can't be true.
Tom: I heard it, too. Oil from the ground. Fancy that.
