Tides canot be from the ☾s influence for there they would be lest at new moones.
Whither water may be drawne out of a receiver like aire or not. This may bee the best way empty the receiver
To try whither the Moone pressing the Atmosphære cause the flux & reflux of the sea. Take a tube of above 30 inches filled with quicksilver, or else take a tube filled with water which is soe much longer than 30 inches as the quicksilver is weightier than water & the top being stopped the liquor will sinke 3 or 4 inches below it leaving a vacuum (perhaps) then as the aire is more or lesse pressed without by ☾ so will the water rise or fall as it doth in a witherglasse by heate or cold. The same may be done by compareing the motions of the water of 2 weather glasses one wherof is with in a vassell of water the other not.
