The word "large" is subjective, i am sure you agree, and tells us nothing about the size or how it compares to any other flaps, slips or strips.

And you quote that the later description used is "long" again its not objective.

While i do appreciate its all we have, its not enough to allow me to draw any conclusions about possible comparisons.
Sorry its probably my science background at work here.

It is vague as an evaluation of the size but it is a word that was used by Hebbert in his observations, whereas 'strip' never was.

Which i fully acknowledge Debs.

My view is that it does not take us any further forward.

You may not agree, nor may Abby or Christer, thats fair enough, each their own.

I don't agree. Personally I find discussion of Elizabeth Jackson's case in whatever context is a good thing.

Slip and strip are practically synonymous, Debs. I introduced "strip" into the discussion so that we modern folk could get a handle on what Hebbert meant, as we no longer use "slip" as frequently these days, nor very often in the sense that it was used back then. Various Oxford English Dictionary definitions of "slip" follow. I've included a lot of the variant definitions, if only to demonstrate that, whichever way we cut it (pardon pun), "slip" invariably denotes narrowness, slenderness and/or an elongated form:
A strip, a narrow piece or stretch, of land, ground, etc

A long and relatively thin and narrow piece or strip of some material

An example or specimen of something having an elongated slender form

A piece of paper or parchment, especially one which is narrow in proportion to its length

A young person of either sex, especially one of small or slender build... A thin or slender person

A twig, sprig, or small shoot from a plant, tree, etc.
