EVERYONE interested in the theory of statistics is aware how strongly Quetelet was under the conviction that there is only one law of error (or curve of facility, to use the corresponding expression for the graphical representation of the law) prevalent for the departure from the mean of a number of magnitudes or measurements of any natural phenomenon. I have done what I can to protest against this doctrine as a theoretic assumption; and recently Mr. F. Galton and Mr. F. Y. Edgeworth have shown in some very interesting and valuable papers in the Philosophical Magazine and elsewhere how untenable it is, and how great is the importance of studying the properties of other laws of error than the symmetrical binomial, and its limiting form the exponential.
