الصفحة 24 - Now the smallest Particles of Matter may cohere by the strongest Attractions, and compose bigger Particles of weaker Virtue; and many of these may cohere and compose bigger Particles whose Virtue is still weaker, and so on for divers Successions, until the Progression end in the biggest Particles on which the Operations in Chymistry, and the Colours of natural Bodies depend, and which by cohering compose Bodies of a sensible Magnitude.
الصفحة viii - Il est vrai que les touts la perdent par rapport à leur mouvement total ; mais les parties la reçoivent , étant agitées intérieurement par la force du concours. Ainsi ce défaut n'arrive qu'en apparence.
