What are "large illegible characters" is a question the answer to which will defer with the strength of eyesight of those
who are to judge: tho' as it would be thought very hard to convict a man who had, according to his notion would plead his complied with what the act requires according to his notion of it

Some Many persons "occupy" places where they Farms for instance & employ
Carriages at them at places where they never live themselves
If a man who hired in London had a farm upon
his hands in Cumberland or Cornwall then
such a one in such a street in London would
be but a roundabout direction: nor on the other hand
would it be necessary to insert every place

He looks upon it as

It may be imagined conceived this will send very proper & well imagined regulation which I have been here cannot always bevery agreeably properly relished by the Drivers.
It was made devised as a check upon their behaviour, means of keeping them in good order <add> to their good behaviour, by their consciousness of being known not of directing
a persecution towards them where they may be assembled to upon any instance of the contrary. It is but natural therefore
to expect that all the shifts that can be imagined to evade the Law should at one time or other be put in practise. Thus
to evade a restraint which on various occasions may incommode them. The move precaution taken against false
supposes as much.

The best way
of acting as
I can think
of to solving it,
is this to impose
the penalty
as here

as the

Every one obvious should not be passed over as improbable.

A few reflections of this

to those as may fail
men of business, who

with which Lawyers
are so ready

all to speak

But to borrow an expression from the subject
there is nothing like putting the saddle at once upon
the right Horse. The Justice view may not know
or be aware of this & then it will be an infinite
distress to him to
give a judgement.
It is certainly worth
no man's while
to advance from 20 or 30
Pounds, in Law

If it be not improbable that but that others besides the
person immediately interested, should may oppose the

This is the way of thinking
I would recommend to
those men of business
who press fine & imprisonment

Still as to the Driver there in another dissenting
for it may be his offence in borrowing moving an improper
Drag-iron to use without his Master's knowledge
If the Master has a drag Iron from pair for
Broadwheels and other for narrow wheels: he may note
the master has but one Drag Iron & that proper for Broadwheels he may borrow another that is not so And this difficulty of setting
on which of the two the driver or the Master the penalty shall fall occurs in moving of this Section.
