The Student must be sensible by this time, how essential it is to get by heart the lon, and lat. of places, for that being done, he can in an instant draw his parallels and insert them, either on the plane of Mercator, (i. é. straight lines,) or on a Stereographic projection, (i. e. like a Hemisphere.)

I do not use minutes in the lon. and lat. as there is no occasion, unless when accurate calculations are wanted to be made; and then it may be done by taking two words for the lon. and two for the lat. and then the first word for each will stand for the degrees,, and the second word will denote the minutes : in making out the lon. and lat. of places, if the minutes exceed 30, take a whole deg. for them, but if they are under 80, take the preceding deg. so that you will always be within a few minutes.

When you have fixed your countries and places by the eye (of the mind) on the Walls of your Room, you will only have to recollect two short words for the deg. of lon, and lat. of any place. Whatever places occupy your upper Room must be N. lat. and those which are found in your lower Room must be S. lat. as I have already told you, that your Floor is to represent your Equator. All places that are found to the right of the meridian of London, (whether in N. or S. lat.) will have E. lon. and all places on the left hand of the meridian of London will possess W. lon. so that the words, (at) and (with) (is) and (was) may be dispensed with, when once you know what Wall and Room any place is in. Also, those who are already acquainted with the Science will have but two words for recollecting the number of deg. for both lon. and lat.—Example, instead of saying, at Archangel in Russia, is a fat mule, I would only



say, Archangel's

fat mule,—for I should well know it was on my right hand Wall, and in my upper Room ; and the words (fat mule) give me 39 E. longitude, and 65 North latitude, almost to the top of the Wall, and near the fourth division. In looking on a Map or Hemisphere, you have all the places in the same position, viz. before you ;but if you transfer them to the Wall, you will have them on a very extended scale surrounding you, and will carry them with the “i mind's eye" into every Room you go.
