 +====== Polling Backward ======
 +
 +There are instances when a piece of work has been in the hands of a [[c:​companionship|companionship]],​ and one of them has obtained a knowledge of the following copy having some [[f:​fat-1|fat]] in it, a short page or a blank page for instance, that he has delayed his own work in order to obtain this fat; and, thus lose perhaps two shillings, which he might have earned in the time, to obtain an advantage to the amount of but one shilling. This is termed //polling backwards//​. ​
