Quote from ‘A Syllabus of Certain Topics of Logic’
A heavy dot scribed at the hook of a spot shall be understood as filling the corresponding blank of the rheme of the spot with an indefinite sign of an individual, so that when there is a dot attached to every hook, the result shall be a proposition which is particular in respect to every subject.
Peirce, 1903, p. 17; CP 4.404
