time_n there_o have_v be_v more_o than_o ordinary_a occasion_n for_o it_o by_o reason_n of_o the_o new_a cast_v of_o the_o mortar-piece_n about_o two_o year_n since_o i_o put_v that_o problem_n into_o a_o method_n and_o make_v a_o draught_n of_o the_o whole_a matter_n to_o increase_v or_o decrease_v the_o strength_n of_o the_o metal_n of_o a_o gun_n in_o any_o possible_a proportion_n assign_v but_o when_o i_o see_v the_o mortar-piece_n bring_v from_o sea_n break_v it_o be_v think_v to_o be_v a_o good_a time_n to_o show_v it_o which_o be_v do_v and_o the_o whole_a matter_n discourse_v of_o at_o large_a but_o it_o signify_v 00._o but_o now_o i_o apply_v that_o problem_n to_o the_o make_n of_o rocket_n for_o the_o young_a artist_n as_o you_o see_v in_o its_o proper_a place_n and_o it_o be_v manifest_a that_o the_o young_a rocket-maker_n of_o this_o city_n be_v very_o careful_a and_o artificial_a in_o their_o rocket_n of_o 8d_n 12d_o or_o 18d_o value_n otherwise_o they_o may_v break_v and_o so_o lose_v their_o labour_n and_o discredit_v themselves_o see_v these_o mathematical_a rule_n be_v so_o applicable_a to_o the_o great_a nicety_n of_o the_o rise_n of_o all_o size_n of_o rocket_n be_v it_o not_o more_o valuable_a to_o be_v apply_v to_o those_o chargeable_a instrument_n of_o war_n viz._n gun_n of_o all_o sort_n with_o their_o carriage_n and_o all_o other_o their_o
