He says it was "a pretty Pynnace of about some thirty tonne."
I think it is Chamfort who says, that "un sot qui a un moment d'esprit, tonne et scandalise comme des chevaux de fiacre au galop."
When he comes to large weights, does he not commonly abjure the 1,000 kilos and write one tonne?
The letter of Mr. Kidder relative to the "pretty pynnace of about thirty tonne," is again referred to by your correspondent.
That is nat so for whan one parte is gone another dothe encrease, and it chansythe dyuersly euyn as the tonne of Canaidus.
