Permanent indeed? what is it that is here meant
by permanent? as if there would be any thing here
permanent in life ten, twenty or thirty years hence
than there is at present: By multiplying lives
and stringingputting them on in a string each behind the
other, the of these lives you allow the favoured person favourite
to take the better the chance you give him him of
finding his interest endowed with a given degree
of permanence, but though you were thus to pack
up in one bundle half a hundred lives you would
gain no more in future contingent time than you lost in present,
nor would the time and labour - either accept
of your reversions at more than they were
worth any more than the favourite would.

The infrugality of this mode of obtainingbuying
moneys worth being just the same whatsoever
be the use made of it when bought or are happily
returned for the present at least from the lack examining<add>scrutinising</add>of enquiring
into the necessity of such purchases: a necessity
not quite so clearly above out of the reach of dispute as the Honourable
penman seems to in agree
