been habitually obtained
by the mathematicians of
France by means of
another branch those
which the attainment is
matter of comparatively
less difficulty
Of divers learned societies it has cost the mathematical
part of the population many years of hard labour to ere they
became convinced of the uselessness of it

Thus have English
mathematicians been
liable to the diminution
of time and trouble produced
in France by
the substitution of algebra

it will cost ere
they are convinced of
the uselessness of the present
procedure

This time cost, logic
if well applied would
have saved them.
Logic — if in those days the practice of making application
of logic to mathematics had been in use all that same
quantity of time and labour would or at least might have been
