form a tubular plait. This method
is recommended by Burney (who is
followed almost verbatim by Bushell).
The heart so formed is simply a weak
plait, and the laying up as rope is
merely a nautical mode of beginning
it, since after the tucking of the ends
there is no ^ laid up rope left. There is thus formed
a weak plait inside a tubular one.
(3) A heart may be formed by making
the inside yarns into foxes of the same
size ^ as or smaller than the outside foxes,
and plaiting these together into a cord
the structure of which would correspond
with a short splice of which the ends
are tucked two to three ^ several times each
way. This would give a far stronger
heart and is the plan ^ devised & recommended
by the writer.
The advantage of the first method
is simplicity, but probably owing to
the uneven strain on the fibres it is
