But it is evident that all conjectures of this kind must be extremely vague and fallible: and that it is by far the safest course to lay them altogether aside, and to confine our attention wholly to the nature and extent of the powers as they are delineated in the Constitution.

Indeed, we show that the well known SHGH Conjecture (see Conjecture 3.2), which gives a complete conjectural solution to the postulation problem, implies that to solve the Stable Postulation Problem it is enough to determine the integral curves C on X with [C.sup.2] [less than or equal to] 0, and it implies that to solve the Stable Ideal Generation Problem it is enough to determine the dimension of the cokernel of [[mu].sub.F] in the case that F = L + iE where E is a smooth rational curve with [E.sup.2] = -1 and where i = L x E.
