Excerpt from The Law of Population, Vol. 2 of 6: A Treatise, in Six Books; In Disproof of the Superfecundity of Human Beings, and Developing the Real Principle of Their Increase (1) It is a recommendation of the prince of ancient philosophers, when treating on a subject not unconnected with the one under consideration, that our "suppositions should be possibilities;" which, in an argument that has so much to do with futurity, and is necessarily governed by so many contingent events, is hardly less important than the rule, which ought to be universal under all circumstances, -that our statements should be truths. It is much to be regretted that neither of these maxims has been sufficiently attended to by the advocates of the prevailing theory of population, even in treating upon those essential points on which the question manifestly depends. We have already seen, that, had the population of the American colonies, in the earlier periods of their history, been carefully ascertained from existing documents of an official character, and faithfully presented to the public, accompanied by an account of the extraneous accessions which it has perpetually received, (a course which none can deny ought to have been adopted, ) the utter irreconcileablcness of its rate of increase with any geometrical ratio whatsoever, would have become instantly apparent, and the sole proof, therefore, upon which the entire theory rests, overturned.
