Notes. 2) Personal Injuries. Simple

Injury the Laws of which are in question. But then with
these senses it has also, I take it, another: in
which with the epithet personal to it it is put for any act on the nature of which
is to produce pain in a person; and this without any regard
to any disposition which the of the thing that goes by the name of Law; though
it seems to be the aptitude of such act to become
the object of the Law's ignorance that originally occasioned
it to take this name. It is in this
sense that speaking of a man who has received
damage by the action of inanimate matter, or
which where not so much thing as any will at all, much less any man's will
was concerned, we are apt to say, he has been greatly
injured in such or such a part of his body:
as if for instance he had fallen down and
strained his hurt a leg, and his an arm: we should might say
his was g leg was his arm was greatly injured
but he did not receive much injury in his leg.

I could have wished to have made use of a
word [the of meaning of which was less equivocal]
of less equivocal signification: but I could not knew can not
find one where that any such word is to be met with in the language. [ [ Go on at p. 4. of this.

Voluntary act [b] [Voluntary act] Whether voluntary forbearances should
be included will be consider'd hereafter.
