We shall have more to say on this subject in our next chapter. How sweet and true an echo from Sonnet XXV in _La Vita Nova_: Tanto gentile e tanto onesta pare!

The Federals are said occasionally to have used three. The whole figure is so still, so easy, it almost floats in air, and seems to sustain the boat by the secret sense of power. All that can be attempted in this survey of the traces of tribal custom in the laws of the Continental tribes is to approach their text afresh in the light of the Cymric evidence, as a tentative first step towards, at last, approaching the Anglo-Saxon laws from the same tribal point of view and from the vantage-ground of a previous study of the survivals of tribal custom elsewhere. Duration thus assumes the illusory form of a homogeneous medium, and the connecting link between these two terms, space and duration, is simultaneity, which might be defined as the intersection of time and space.
