II. Imperative law, the directive part branch: to which belongs
that portion of the law which is occupied in the distribution of
private rights, or any benefits private powers included, as also of burthens
namely those burthens the imposition of which is necessary
to the creation and preservation of the correspondent law
benefits. Of what he has done in relation to this branch
the greatest part remains still on his shelves portfolios. But a work
on the subject of Real property is on other mans shelves.
In this he has gone Into the well at the bottom of which the stock of truth
is deposited has his stock he has gone deeper than ever man was
before him. From it He has brought up from it the Non-disappointment
: the foundation of whatsoever good a principle which in conjunction with two ones of means necessity
and less central applicability

regarding and political-
economy regarding or say
the over-population-obviating,

has ever been or ever can be done by him in relation to directive or /punitive/ sanctitive that is paid
property including an address, press, reputation, and, condition the several objects of general to
in life: condition in life in so far as compliant or regarded as such
Finding it seeing it the reach of plain common sense and reduction of unusually
experienced feelings, a learned gentleman perceives it to be of the said seeing it to be innovative and seeing that it produces no
good to him is frightened/takes fright at it: and like a skittish horse at the sight of a passing
runs away from it, saying to nobody else any thing more of it than
the horse is . Instead of this to talk of the first principle of justice, —and[+]1
[+]1 of every principle of justice, not being
more able to tell what they are, thus the
horse is. But this though stark nonsense,
being familiar to all his horses and riders [+]2
[+]2 and being in the habit of suffering
current with all of them for
and argument, he is not frightened
at it any more than the horse would
is at a quarter of oats: but on the contrary[+]3

II. Imperative law the sanctionative punitive sub-ramification of the seed <First and most important
sub-branch of it the Punitive: stated sometimes I the Penal

IV. Imperative law the sanctionative. Second and
only remaining branch the remunerative ever since that
same year 18 in like manner by favour of Mr Dumont,

A translation of it has for some time been ready
for the press, and would by this time have been out of the press,
but for the treatment official and professional policy which by those whose interest it is when against interest laws produces self-regarded interests

to borrow exactly as much as seals each mans pardon, being as little as possible, and speak and make
about it as little as possible
