Though any things have by ingenious men been already observed, as to the power and operations of the atmosphere's weight upon liquors that are exposed to it in torricellian tubes (or other Vessels closed at one end, and near the top either empty or unfilled with any visible body), yet such men do not seem to have observed the variations of the atmosphere's weight in other vessels.
