Note that the Earths diurnall motion is not helped by its vortex, for by the same force it would move the water & air along with it, or rather faster. Try whither the Seas flux & reflux bee greater in Spring or Autume in winter or Sommer by reason of the s Aphelion & perihelion. Whither the Earth moved out of its Vortexes center by the Moones pression cause not a monethly Parallax in Mars &c In the Island Berneray scituated betwixt the Islands Eust & Herris In the tract of Islands west to scotland called by the inhabitants the long Island (Berneray is 3 miles long from east to west, & more than one mile broade). foure days before & after the full moone the tide flood runs east & its ebb west (the spring tides riseing 14 or 15 foot upright). but foure days before & after the quarters (a southerly moone makeing there full sea) One flood & ebb runns east ward from about 9h 30' to 3h 30' in the day & in the other 12 night howers the flood & ebb run west ward in the summe 12 yeare when the ☉ hath northerne declin{e} but in winter it runs westward in the day eastward in the night.
