M. Euler was perfectly aware how much the application of his theory was limited by the hypotheses it was derived from, he allows that his conclusions will not apply where migration has place, nor in case of any extraordinary increase of the people, such, he says, as takes place in new colonies; but he appears to have considered the increase in geometrical progression to prevail generally, though I believe it seldom does, either in countries that have been long or very recently settled (192-197)....

I say it is enough if we know from the Searchers but the most predominant symptoms; as that one died of the Head-Ache, who was sorely tormented with it, though the physicians were of opinion that the disease was in the stomach. Again, if one died suddenly, the matter is not great, whether it be reported in the Bills, Suddenly, Apoplexy, or Planet-strucken, etc. 10. To conclude, in many of these cases the Searchers are able to report the opinion of the physician who was with the patient, as they receive the same from the friends of the defunct, and in very many cases, such as Drowning, Scalding, Bleeding, Vomiting, Making-away themselves, Lunaticks, Sores, Small-Pox, etc.

5. Secondly, I find by telling the number of families in some parishes within the Walls, that 3 out of 11 families per annum have died: wherefore, 13,000 having died in the whole, it should follow there were 48,000 families according to the last mentioned account. 6. Thirdly, the account which I made of the trained bands and auxiliary soldiers, doth enough justify this account. 7. And lastly I took the map of London set out in the year 1658 by Richard Newcourt, drawn by a scale of yards. Now I guessed that in 100 yards square there might be about 54 families, supposing every house to be 20 foot in the front: for on two sides of the said square there will be 100 yards of housing in each, and in the two other sides 80 each; in all 360 yards: that is 54 families in each square, of which there are 220 within the Walls, making in all 11,880 families within the Walls.
