pt 272, l. - 9 (ts 2): ts: `we may now attempt'


pt 273, par. `Our account'; this is run into preceding par. in ts.


pt 274, l. 12 (ts 2): ts has `This prior level was described in the section on consists in data, images, and percepts.'  Ms B changes to: `... was described in the chapters on common sense.'

pt 277, l. 5 (ts 6): ts has `Their insights are grasps of concrete unities, of systematic regularities, or of ideal frequencies diverging non-systematically from the systematic.  Their judgments ...'


ts 277, l. - 19 (ts 6): ts has `once' for `when'
