Quote from ‘A Syllabus of Certain Topics of Logic’
A cut is not a graph-replica. A cut drawn upon the sheet of assertion severs the surface it encloses, called the area of the cut, from the sheet of assertion; so that the area of a cut is no part of the sheet of assertion.
Peirce, 1903, pp. 20-21; CP 4.414
