Abstract

Legislators have frequently shown a disposition to promote equality, under the name of equity, a word to which greater latitude has been given than to justice. But, this idea of equity, vague and half developed, has rather appeared an affair of instinct than of calculation. It was only by much patience and method, that it was found possible to reduce to rigorous propositions, an incoherent multitude of confused sentiments.
