Note.-In calculating the medians, the entries have been taken as referring to the middle of the squares in which they stand. The reason why the headings run 62.2, 63.2, &e., instead of 62'5, 63.5, &c., is that the observations are unequally distributed between 62 and 63, 63 and 64, &c., there being a strong bias in favour of integral inches. After careful consideration, I concluded that the headings, as adopted, best satisfied the conditions. This inequality was not apparent in the case of the mid-parents.

1 I have reprinted this Table without alteration from that published in the Froc. Roy. -Soc., notwithstanding a small blunder since discovered in sorting the entries between the first and second lines. It is obvious that 4 children cannot have 5 MidParents. The first line is not considered at all, on account of the paucity of the numbers it contains. The bottom line, which looks suspicious, is correct.
