parts. The ordinary opinion is that
by having a strain on a (pl. 1. 1. ) [?] in
preference to c, a bites c against the
two parts of the bow [?] loop. As a given
strain can produce only a given friction,
such friction force as a exerts on c in
this manner that d [?] must be subtracted
from that availible for tightening gripping
d & b together. On the other hand with
the same strain on c more is availible
for this gripping process and it is as
essential to the security regarded as a weaver [?] of the knot, that
they should be so gripped as that c should
be bitten down by a. (See p35. B.)
For practical purposes where rope of singular thickness is used , the whole
question resolves itself into a matter of
a little guardance to [?] [...][?] of the knot before it
acquires the requisite [?] degree of tightness.
This is necessary with most knots. and
