Three very material things arise from not placing the boot leg in the position of the man's leg: First, if the boot leg be near a perpendicular, it will set off in front from the man's leg; secondly, it will be in two great folds behind when the person stands erect; and thirdly, the person will have more trouble to get on such a boot.--And likewise if the length of the quarter of the boot L. c. be cut as above directed, so as that the wide part of the vamp does not press on the flexor of the foot, and the boot leg to be in a perpendicular position, or nearly so; then the tongue of the boot, and the adjoining part of the boot leg, will set off from the upper part of the instab, and the leg in a loose and clumsy form;--Therefore it will be better for the boot to exceed the position of the leg than otherwise; for then it will sit closer to a man's leg in front, and without any folds behind when the boot is drawn up, and will go on with more ease.
