Spedding writes: “That Richard the second, and Richard the third, are meant for the titles of _Shakespeare’s_ plays so named, I infer from the fact–of which the evidence may be seen in the _facsimile_–that the list of contents being now complete, the writer (or more probably another into whose possession the volume passed) has amused himself with writing down promiscuously the names and phrases that most ran in his head; and that among these the name of _William Shakespeare_ was the most prominent, being written eight or nine times over for no other reason that can be discerned.

Fully admitting the great value and interest of Quetelet’s work in this direction,–he was certainly the first to direct public attention to the fact that so many classes of natural objects display the same characteristic property,–it nevertheless does not seem desirable to attempt to mark such a distinction by any special use of these technical terms. Footnote 55: This painter’s book of studies from nature, commonly called _Liber Veritatis_, disproves the truth of the general opinion that his landscapes are mere artificial compositions for the finished pictures are nearly fac-similes of the original sketches.

In this case the conscious states are _imagined_ instead of being _reproduced_; but, then, to the image of the psychic states themselves some indication of their _intensity_ should be added, since they no longer act on the person in whose mind they are pictured and the latter has no longer any chance of experiencing their force by actually feeling them. _F.

Since that time cricket must have increased at least tenfold; football has developed into three colossal and quite distinct branches, not to mention Colonial and American variations and the historic cults of English schools; golf has grown from the recreation of a few Scots to the business of ten thousand Britons; lawn-tennis, purged of its garden-party birthstain, has become a game of the first rank; hockey has lived down the derision of its youth and commands its thousands of devotees; cross-country running holds its head high; lacrosse has become a bond of Empire; _quid plura_?
