Berger hase lighted also vpon a new way of polishing of Cupper as also Pell of pewter or tinne. One maine thing yet to adde to this Invention is to make it cheaper. for now a sheete wil come to 20 shillings if in brasse but if in tinne then it will bee farre cheaper, which is yet fullier to bee experimented. Now the benefits of such an Art are very many et great. Amongst others, 1. It serves much for secrecy. 2. it most [altered from is] easy et every body may learne it wheras setting or composing is very hard et must bee learned. 3. It is speedier then printing, 2 or 3 sheetes in a day. 4. One Man may doe all. 5. it is more portable. 6. It serves much for Chaunceries. 7. It will not bee perceived that it's printed but shew neerly as writing. 8. It wil present divers hands.

The abrogation of Termes et Notions breedes oftentimes a great inconveniencie in the doctrines. As e.g. the name Ministri pro Presbyteri (Ministri being found in the New Testament but then always in respect of God et Christ) and especially the Word Sacrificium pro Eucharistia in the Primitive Church which if it had beene rightly explicated et retained would have taken of those weapons by which the Papists fight now against vs et 2dly would have vtterly prevented the Heresy of the Socinians, their mainest error lying in the satisfaction. vnder this notion the truth of this doctrine would have been perpetuated. Few vnderstand this terme et are able to explaine it aright. for commonly they mistake. Only Perkins in his Latin [Probleme?] adding his owne explication of the word hase or hits the right. True by this abrogating the Papists have beene soundly banged but notwithstanding wee have rune into other precipices. Wee need not to have feared the Papists glosses if wee had rightly opened this Terme. Mead.

Hugo Grotius posset nobis absolutam dare Iurisprudentiam, hoc est Ius Publicum et Iurisprudentiam Romanam et reliquas partes. Sic etiam Politicam. Nam quos habemus Autores systematicos sive alios in Politicis sunt tam potius Ethici et Rhapsodi cum quam Politica Lipsii. Ostendunt quibus virtutibus exornati esse debeant Politici. Ipsius Liber de Iure Pacis et Belli incomparabilis est liber. Si igitur <ita> pergeret in reliquis absolutam haberemus scientiam Civilem et Iuridicam. Sed ille et tales viri non aliis Mediis poterunt in societatem consiliorum vel Operum pertrahi nisi sumptibus et authoritate Regum et Principum.
