Re: "Here is one of Peirce's earliest discussions of
the difference between general signs and vague signs"

I didn't mean to write that there, as 1905 wouldn't be
considered early days for Peirce -- though it is a good
question when he first started using the words "general"
and "vague" for this distinction, now that I think of it.

I was preparing some related quotes from the 1860's and
my mind must have skipped ahead, or back, at that point.
