  1. My question concerns a word in "A Thought or Two," by Benjamin Franklin, printed at the end of "Learning to Work Under Pressure."

    The context is: "The world is certainly a great and stately volume of natural things; and may be styled hieroglyphics of a [b-t-reverse e] : but alas! How very few leaves of it do we seriously turn over?"

    The outline "b-t-reverse e" represents "better," of course; but "better" makes no sense in this context. Can this outline represent another word that makes sense here?
