tends to get into a mess and jam [?],
owing to the inequal friction of the
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,
friction force as a exerts on c in
this manner that
d [?] must be subtracted
from that availible for
d & b together. On the other hand with
the same strain on c more is available
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

This is necessary with most knots.
