P. 222, l. 2. about the sixtieth part of Time] What this exactly means is not quite clear, though none of the previous editors have thought it necessary to explain the expression. It seems to agree in a rough way with the "seventy or eighty years mentioned at the beginning of this section; and Sir T. B. says (p. 314, I. 23), “I have not seen the sixtieth part of Time, when he was probably not quite seventy years old. But even eighty years multiplied by sixty only comes to 4,800, and this is far too short a period to have been assigned either to or to our Earth, even in the seventeenth century. Upon the whole it seems probable that Sir T. B. was thinking of the six thousand years, which he has mentioned several times before (see Note on p. 72, 1. 27); but if so, it would have been more accurate to call a man's life “about the eightieth part of Time" than the “sixtieth.'
