"Pereant illi qui ante nos nostra dixerunt," now, therefore, I do request by this instrument that all well-disposed persons will abstain from asserting or implying that I am open to any accusation whatsoever touching the said comparison, and, if they have so asserted or implied, that they will have the manliness forthwith to retract the same assertion or insinuation.

Two lines lower down he writes of "hereditary memory or instinct," thereby implying that instinct is "hereditary memory." Lower down on the same page he writes: "As showing how close is the connection between hereditary memory and instinct," &c. And on the following page:

Continence differs from temperance, as implying resistance to strong desires; whereas temperance implies that such desires are not active. Prudence but not the acuteness which is sometimes confused with prudence is incompatible with incontinence, which is least curable when the outcome of weakness.

"Oh, I had no idea!" she exclaimed, getting very red; and then, without a word of greeting, she reopened the piano. Cecil should have the Parsifal, and anything else that he liked. "Our performer has changed her mind," said Miss Bartlett, perhaps implying, she will play the music to Mr. Emerson. Lucy did not know what to do nor even what she wanted to do.

Randal delivered Riccabocca's note, which was very short, implying that he feared Peschiera had discovered his retreat, and requesting Lady Lansmere to retain Violante, whatever her own desire, till her ladyship heard from him again. The countess read, and her lip curled in disdain. "Strange!" said she, half to herself.
