While the principal object of this paper is to place on record the results of a couple of experiments in forecasting population, certain extended digressions have been made into the past (sometimes the distant past) not always with a view to extrapolation into the future. If these digressions depart too much from the main theme, it is hoped that they will compensate, in however small a degree, in interest for what they lack in relevance.
