"The effect of resistances of various kinds on the vibrations of the pendulum is become a subject of increased importance, from its influence on the determination of a standard measure: for although the effect of these resistances on the time may be wholly inconsiderable, it is by no means superfluous to prove, by demonstrative evidence that they are actually insensible."
