Waiving that point, however, and supposing her to be, as you describe her, only pretty and goodnatured, let me tell you, that in the degree she possesses them, they are not trivial recommendations to the world in general, for she is, in fact, a beautiful girl, and must be thought so by ninetynine people out of an hundred; and till it appears that men are much more philosophic on the subject of beauty than they are generally supposed; till they do fall in love with wellinformed minds instead of handsome faces, a girl, with such loveliness as Harriet, has a certainty of being admired and sought after, of having the power of chusing from among many, consequently

At last, I fixed upon a resolution, for which it is probable I may incur some censure, and not unjustly; for I confess I owe the preserving of mine eyes, and consequently

The first objection is, that a Flatlander, seeing a Line, sees something that must be THICK to the eye as well as LONG to the eye (otherwise it would not be visible, if it had not some thickness); and consequently

When I made the plans for this submarine vessel, I meant that nine-tenths should be submerged: consequently
it ought only to displace nine-tenths of its bulk, that is to say, only to weigh that number of tons.
For them a wall is not an evasion, as for us people who think and consequently
