of most experiments
on the strength of bodies
but the details are
all lost. The result
though he has in his
memory he does not
mean to publish
till he can have
opportunity of repeating
them.

in certain
circumstances he
finds stronger
I think was
strong as iron
bulk for bulk.

Paper half as
strong as iron
a cilinder of paper
of which the transaction
is a square

strong as iron
half.

braces for carriage
instead of springs

filled with balls
bottoms of worsted
yarn, then tied
up between each

with a leather strap
to keep out the
rain. The Count
has found thus
possibly for Guns
and braces
be made for his carriage.

For his bridges he
hooks timber together
then drives a wedge
in each hook at
the same & degree.

In the making a
stove he has introduced
two chimney
pots to form column
looking flues.

forepart of carriage
and on the horses.
