Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :
```
PROBABILITY. That which is likely to happen; that which is most consonant to
reason; for example, there is a strong probability that a man of a good
moral character, and who has heretofore been remarkable for truth, will,
when examined as a witness under oath, tell the truth; and, on the contrary,
that a man who has been guilty of perjury, will not, under the same
circumstances, tell the truth; the former will, therefore, be entitled to
credit, while the latter will not.
