Founded upon self-evident principles in experimental philosophy and practical mathematicks, and upon historical facts. And farther demonstrated, by comparing the River Ouse, with the River Thomas, &c. and Lyn-Harbour, with the Harbour of Rye. With reflections upon all the schemes hitherto proposed for draining the fens, shewing wherein they are defective.
