Footnotes

  • Alongside Ray's description of "the Campagna of Rome", an early reader has noted: "the thinness of inhabitants is the reason of its being so ill cultivated; which occasions the unhealthyness; and the thinness of inhabitants is so occasioned by the hardness of their masters: who then are to be blamed for all these Evils?"
