with respect to this we areleft in at a loss
being either disjunctive or appositive i:e. or
app explanatory i:e: oppositive

One should be glad to know whether
the particulars which fellow men
merely meant as so many examples only or as
being a compleat & exhaustive
specification of the contents of the
general term [employ'd in Husbandry]
which precedes them

this we should have done without
difficulty if in the 1st case
the word [for example] had been
used, for in the latter, the word

the former part is the construction of
the word [or] is to be understood
in a its disjunctive or appositive
cases as if it were applied
to the particulars which
are not specified (for it can
hardly be understood as opposed
to those that are)

the latter if it be understood in
it's <sic>appositive or subdisjunctive
sense as if it were the same being the genus fitting all the species
with the whole of them them all taken together

Not knowing which of them
was the meaning I have left
it in the as I found it

The first part of a sentence being
that which first attracts the eye
There is this use in putting assigning this shorter clause
limitationed of this local extent of an an Article not
in that place, that it gives immediate
notice to all those who are
not within that extent

gives to those who have no concerns
in it, to regard it in that

Where there is a clause, as here, limitating
the local extent of any Article
the should placing it in front of that Article it
is of use in order to oppose those
who are not written that extent
it's not concerning them

saves those who are not concerned
in it the trouble of their attention
To an inexperienced reader of a
Parliamentary of this nature, are
apt to be lost where when wrapped in <add> scattered in the course of a long sentence

By this means, a person without
troubling himself to read it
all though see at once
whether it concerns him

Miles returned from London
shall be Westminster or Southwark taken together
refers to the distance expressed <add> that part from where

in the Mile Stone of such
road is returned: where there
are more such places than one such places
to the nearest

to such place being undertaken common
language as being to this intent within
either of these 3 districts

for narrow wh Carts ... N. here I have been obliged to leave blank Here one sees there is a
blank in the original

It is remarkable enough So that the loading of a narrow wheeled which <add>cart being
travel with a loading of any weight as above for the original is silent: as are issues which would be
further to be consider'd at if any occasion were to be wondered
at around in it

It is true that the weight of the loading is touched
indirectly by the of number of the beasts to that are to draw
it: but so it is of the other sorts in the instances of carriages : so
that either that of weight is necessary here or that for the species of
of this number of beasts is none needless than for the others
where a thick atmosphere of sounds words without sense
covers up those that have a man
from observation
all the accuracy
that can be desired

The ministers of justice
are bound under a penalty
to give the people information
that is false.

It is the common fault of our legislative compositors, failing in our Statutes
that the events which give occasion to these may be
traced with all utmost accuracy perfect exactness <add>unity the point of the
mischief that has happened being ever just cover'd & no more by the remedy
that is cut to fit it.

hence as what has actually
been done, is seldom all that
may be done

Another instance of a parcel of words which are too few, because
they are too many

This is needless


a Transporter gate where
there is an engine is out
of the question & where
there is one the word weighing
engine answers the purpose

It is common enough in so many
places provisions in throughout our Statute Books
as in this to read the very events
that gave them birth — the remedy
being cut so as just to fit cover the mischief that
has actually happened if not more
gives all the facility for treating it that
this one can desire it came to be Horse Cart or the
Carriage, so we see it.

The remedy

One Thus <add>The might one easily swear the case
to have been here, that the person author who
first thought of this clause had happened to heard
of one some man who had had used Horses
in readiness with the loading to
put on goods
for the purpose, &
of another some other that had used a cart,
& so the last happening to put
him in mind of the Carriages
but the Horse not happening to out
him in mind of other Beasts
