                                has consolidated on a slope 
of 28[degrees] near the top of the cone of
the Peak. This fact is singularly 
opposed to the <s>supposed <\s> alledged impossibili-
ty of lavas <s>what flow <\s> cooling on slopes 
exceeding 6[degrees] to form <s>ing<\s> stony & un-
broken layers, as insisted upon 
by E. de Beaumont & other 
defenders of V. Busch’s hypothesis 
of Elevation-craters.
If the M.S. was sent to 
the Geological Socy I should re-
commend them to cull out the 
passage for their Journal for I doubt its being 
in the printed book <s>as<\s> it well deserves to be.
I have not read over
