conclusion (n.)
experiment, investigation
AC V.ii.353[Caesar to all, of Cleopatra] She hath pursued conclusions infinite / Of easy ways to die
Cym I.vi.18[Queen to Cornelius, of her drug-making] is't not meet / That I did amplify my judgement in / Other conclusions?
Luc.1160[Lucrece to herself] That mother tries a merciless conclusion / Who, having two sweet babes, when death takes one, / Will slay the other
