Quote from ‘A Syllabus of Certain Topics of Logic’
A spot is a graph any replica of which occupies a simple bounded portion of a surface, which portion has qualities distinguishing it from the replica of any other spot; and upon the boundary of the surface occupied by the spot are certain points, called the hooks of the spot, to each of which, if permitted, one extremity of one line of identity can be attached.
Peirce, 1903, p. 22; CP 4.416
