And now it was that, being on some occasion made asham'd of my ignorance in figures, which I had twice failed in learning when at school, I took Cocker's book of Arithmetick, and went through the whole by myself with great ease.

And I read about this time Locke On Human Understanding, and the Art of Thinking, by Messrs. du Port Royal.
