Theorem merco1 1636
Description: A single axiom for propositional calculus offered by Meredith.

This axiom is worthy of note, due to it having only 19 symbols, not counting parentheses. The more well-known meredith 1564 has 21 symbols, sans parentheses.

See merco2 1659 for another axiom of equal length. (Contributed by Anthony Hart, 13-Aug-2011.) (Proof modification is discouraged.) (New usage is discouraged.)
