1 The whole nearly of this Chapter is borrowed from Theophrastus, Hist. Plant. B. vii. cc. 1 and 2. It must be borne in mind that what the Romans called the "third" day would with us be the "second," and so on; as in reckoning, they included the day reckoned from, as well as the day reckoned to.
2 Fée remarks, that most of the observations made in this Chapter are well founded.
3 This statement, Fée remarks, is entirely a fiction, it being impos- sible for seed to acquire, the second year, a faculty of germinating which it has not had in the first.
4 This is true, but, as Fée observes, the instances might be greatly extended.
