1822 July 21.
Constitut. Code Rationale

1.
Factitious honor extravasated
– its peculiar
evils.
1. In addition to peculiar
wastefulness, do.
absurdity.

2.
Admitting it to be well
seated when primary
seated, by extravasation
the honor is rendered
mis-seated: thereby matching
with mis-seated punishment.

3.
Punishment and reward
aptly seated when seated
in the agent in question:
unaptly-seated or
say mis-seated in so far
as in any other.

4.
Of mis-seated punishment
the absurdity as
well as atrocity is recognized
by all not blinded
by terror or terror-begotten
prejudice: if anyone
besides the agent,
then all should be so
dealt with.

5.
Mis-seated is wither
1. Vicarious –
2. Extravasated.

6.
Absurd justification of
mis-seated punishment:
viz. extravasated. Much
naturally so is unavoidable;
therefore add factitious.

7.
Inducements to the addition:
1 Self preservation:
2 Rapacity, i.e. desire
of depredation.

8.
Further cause of the
propensity – principle
of blind imitation: subject
of imitation to God.
Habitual to God is such
mis-seated punishment:
therefore so should it be
to man. Apply this to medical
practice.

9.
Not irrelevant to reward
is what is thus
said of punishment.
Waste of evil leads to
waste of good: they belong
to the same mind
and the same form
of Governments, they
spring from the same
root: for those
at whose expence it is
made.

10.
Vicarious reward too
palpably absurd to be
any where exemplified
(Quere?) Extravasated,
not: applied to factitious
honour in particular.

11.
Plea, if any, for factitious
honor, extra meritorious
service by the
individual honored:
in so far as the honor
is extravasated, this
plea is flagrant, false.

12
Applied to punishment,
the extravasated part
had a pretence, and even
a portion of sufficient
justification – Not so,
when applied to reward
in this shape.

13.
Plea as applied to
punishment, conduciveness
of forfeiture
to disablement and depredation.
Replication. For disablement,
temporary,
expropriation sufficient:
for deterioration
of aptly seated punishment
more is applicable
than can be
applied without being
so plainly excessive,
that by being uninflictible,
it is rendered inoperative.
