Penned upon the 8th of May, 2006

You will need:
A scales
A paper
A ink

FIRST: Measure the weight of the paper, record.
SECOND: On the paper, write the letter “R” with the ink.
THIRD: Measure the weight of the paper with the letter written on it with the ink.
FOURTH: Remove the paper, measure the weight of the letter and the ink.
FIFTH: Remove the letter, measure the weight of the ink alone.
SIXTH: Subtract this from the weight of the paper, the paper with the letter and the ink and the letter with the ink, and the resulting sum will be the weight of the letter “R”.

    …. Don’t you just need to measure the weight of the paper with and without the inked letter on it?

    Your life has no romance, sir!


  3. Sir Frederick Chooke was heard to remark,

    That does not take into account the additional weight of the ink. The weight of the ink and the letter is of no use to anyone.
