     2. In pleading, numbers must be stated truly, when alleged in the recital of a record, written instrument, or express contract. Lawes' PI. 48; 4 T. R. 314; Cro. Car. 262; Dougl. 669; 2 Bl. Rep. 1104. But in other cases, it is not in general requisite that they should be truly stated, because they are not required to be strictly proved. If, for example, in an action of trespass the plaintiff proves the wrongful taking away of any part of the goods duly described in his declaration, he is entitled to recover pro tanto. Bac. Ab. Trespass, I 2 Lawes' PI. 48.

Trover, F 1; and in an action for the loss of goods, by burning the plaintiff's house, the articles may be described by the simple denomination of "goods" or "divers goods." 1 Keb. 825; Plowd. 85, 118, 123; Cro. Eliz. 837; 1 H. Bl. 284.

The system-by-system analysis, however, constitutes crucial comparative evidence for Chrisomalis's claims: most notably, that numerical notation systems did not develop in a linear sequence, but can best be described by a multi-linear pattern; that we cannot assess the functionality or effectiveness of numerical systems on universally valid, context-independent criteria; and finally, that in order to explain both the shared features of notation systems across time and space, and their differences and diachronic changes, we must take both cognitive and social and historical factors into account.
