Observations on
the Definitions
of Euclid
(Stone's Euclid)
Continuation of a of either end of any right line of any length
from the termination of any right
line already formed & that such line
may be continued to any length.
2. In the second This so called postulate of Euclid
is implied in the first presents
exactly the same meaning as the one
before it although in different words.
3. That a circle may be described to
from any centre to any distance —
A circle may come to have need
to be described of delineated by a
radius of any length. Be these circles
ever so large or ever so small the figure
species of boundary & so for the figure
is always in all of them the same.
4148 & unobjectionable but the one
way of of shewing them to be so in speaking
to students is to take a few articles
of money of the same denomination
& as the observation is true of money so
is it of all other things.
9. This merely regards the meaning
of the words "whole" & "part" is either the that is
the relation the two lines bear to
one another.
10. All right angles are equal to one another
see for this act. —
11. By Euclid this d is
misplaced. The genus of which it is
a species is not that in which are
included what he terms postulates axioms but that which in giving
is expression to which the end corresponding to proposition is employed
by him.
12 Axiom. On taking any two right lines whatever this on inspection will be
seen to be manifest & undeniable.
