Modes.       §4. First, Modes I call such complex Ideas, which however com-
pounded, contain not in them the supposition of subsisting by
themselves, but are considered as Dependences on, or Affections of
Substances; such are the Ideas signified by the Words Triangle,
Gratitude, Murther, etc. And if in this I use the word Mode, in some-
what a different sence from its ordinary signification, I beg pardon;
it being unavoidable in Discourses, differing from the ordinary
received Notions, either to make new Words, or to use old Words in
somewhat a new signification, the latter whereof, in our present
case, is perhaps the more tolerable of the two.
