5. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
INTERVAL. A space of time between two periods. When a person is unable to 
perform an act at any two given periods, but in the interval he has 
performed such act, as when a man is found to be insane in the months of 
January and March, and he enters into a contract or makes a will in the 
interval, in February, he will be presumed to have been insane at that time; 
and the onus will lie to show his sanity, on the person who affirms such 
act. See Lucid interval.
