| About progress and utility
What an advantage!
Imagine! what benefit this could bring
to the Realm! If all which within Sweden every year is loaded
upon Carts - or Waggons, which are merely double Carts - were,
say, 7 million talents, and the question by the Royal Academy
of Sciences could be answered in the affirmative, then the improvement
would be easy, and in time widespread; the outcome would be that
3 million talents could be carried at no cost, or three sevenths
of the Realm's entire cartage be superfluous. Who could then consider
the time, effort and cost spent on such an essential Objective
