Quote from ‘A Syllabus of Certain Topics of Logic’
By a Cut shall be understood to mean a self-returning linear separation (naturally represented by a fine-drawn or peculiarly colored line) which severs all that it encloses from the sheet of assertion on which it stands itself, or from any other area on which it stands itself.
Peirce, 1903, p. 16; CP 4.399
