"All that supposition is based on her telling you the truth," Cynthia pointed out.
This is a pure supposition inconsistent with chronology, and based only on a misinterpretation of a passage in an old book.
Corroborative facts have been gathered from other parts of the country, and, although more evidence is required, such as we have is strongly in favour of the supposition that the London Stone is a prehistoric monument.
This supposition was shown to be incorrect, and the nature of the new element was ascertained.
The historians, in accord with the old habit of acknowledging divine intervention in human affairs, want to see the cause of events in the expression of the will of someone endowed with power, but that supposition is not confirmed either by reason or by experience.
