[Footnote 7:  This excess of corpulence in the English is attained chiefly after forty, as I have said.  The average American is taller than the average Englishman, and is fully as well built in proportion to his height, as Gould has shown.  The child of either sex in New England is both taller and heavier than the English child of corresponding class and age, as Dr. H.I.  Bowditch has lately made clear; while the English of the manufacturing and agricultural classes are miserably inferior to the members of a similar class in America.]
