1. When the clause
to which it is intended
that the
modification should
be considered as
applied is that which
it is intended should
stand before any of
the others to which
it would be capable
of being applied. In
this case put the
modificative clause
before the clause
intended to be modified:
and thus
every modificative
clause or any number
may be made to
precede and by that
means exclusively attach
upon one and the
same modificand.

2. The other expedient
is applicable to all
sorts of cases. It consists
in stowing lodging the
modificative clause in
the belly of the modificand.
By this means
it is to this modificative
clause to the exclusion
of all other modificative
clauses that it will
be found applicable.

In the wording of acts

is pretty generally
employed and that
