“I should now go to the rest of your excellent remarks upon the Beef, the Geese, the Loch, the Peat-man & the Kyle nor shall an iota of them drop. But they have all (of them) their peculiar Weight”

Correspondence between Samuel Pepys and Lord Reay on the singular properties of second sight, 9 Jan. 1700

Note

An old post that sprung to mind thinking of objects with their own curious and particulars weights, interacting and altering form.
