Of Retention.
Contemplation.       §1. The next Faculty of the Mind, whereby it makes a farther
Progress towards Knowledge, is that which I call Retention, or the
keeping of those simple Ideas, which from Sensation or Reflection it
hath received. This is done two ways. First, by keeping the Idea,
which is brought into it, for some time actually in view, which is
called Contemplation.
