Every variety in the outline of a wood rust be a prominenco, or a
Breadth in either is not so inportant as lent'ı to the ono, and depth to the other. If tho forner ends in an ancle, the latter diminishes to a point, they have more force than a shallow dent, or a dwart excrescence, how wide soever. They al'e croater deviations from the continuod line which they are intended to breuk; and their effect is to enlarge the wood itself, which seems to streth Troli tl10 most advanced point, back beyond the most distant to which it retilos. The oxtont of a large wood on a flat, but not c011. Janded, can by no circunstance be so canifestly shewn, as by a deep rocess; especially is that recess wind so as to conceal the extremity, and leave the bacination to pursue it. On the othor hand, the poverty of a shallom wood isnt saletines be l'Olieved by here and there a proninence, or clumps, which by their apparent junction should soon to be prorinencies from it. A ddepor wood with a continuod outline, except when co. 1.14ndei, would not appeur ro considerable

Threo or four laic0 ports thus boldly distinguished, will break a very long outline; more may be, and often ou ht to be, thrown in, but selâor are necessary: and wien two woods are opposed on the sides of a narrow Clado, neither has souch occasion for variety in itself, as is it were sint'le: if they are vozy different from each other, tho contrust supplies the deficiency to cuo and the interval betwoen then is full or variety. mho 1o. of that interval is indeed of as such consequence as their on: tho'ich t'le outlins of both the woods be sopuratoly beautiful, yet if touethor tiey do not cast the open space into an a reeable fisure, the whole scene is not pleasing; , and that ficure is never ücreeable, when the sides 100 closoly correspond; whether they ure exactly the 310, or cxectly the ev330 of each other, they equally appear artificial.
