As Colour and Solidity bear no sort of resemblance to one another, so neither can their respective modifications. The resentment of mankind, however, runs so high against this crime, their terror for the man who shows himself capable of committing it is so great, that the mere attempt to {92} commit it ought in all countries to be capital. Humour itself, which is supposed only to come with maturity of feeling and reflection, begins to announce itself in a modest way during this period.
