From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Par·a·graph n.
 1. Originally, a marginal mark or note, set in the margin to call attention to something in the text, e. g., a change of subject; now, the character commonly used in the text as a reference mark to a footnote, or to indicate the place of a division into sections.
 Note:This character is merely a modification of a capital P (the initial of the word paragraph), the letter being reversed, and the black part made white and the white part black for the sake of distinctiveness.
 2. A distinct part of a discourse or writing; any section or subdivision of a writing or chapter which relates to a particular point, whether consisting of one or many sentences.  The division is sometimes noted by the mark but usually, by beginning the first sentence of the paragraph on a new line and at more than the usual distance from the margin, also called indenting the line.  See indentation4.
 3. A brief composition complete in one typographical section or paragraph; an item, remark, or quotation comprised in a few lines forming one paragraph; as, a column of news paragraphs; an editorial paragraph.
