"In the places thus appropriated to the artificial Memory (supposing them the apartments of the house) there would be moveables; as statues and pictures in one warlike weapons in another, tables and couches in a third: or, if they did not admit of such furniture, it would be easy for the orator to allot to each place (whatever it was) a certain number of symbols, or figures, or names, ranged in a certain manner."
