Excerpt from Supplement to the Memoir Entitled "the Influence of Parental Alcoholism on the Physique and Ability of the Offspring": A Reply to the Cambridge Economists

The Galton Laboratory memoir, published under the above title, has been subjected to much biased criticism to which it would be pure waste of time and energy to reply. It might be wiser to treat in the same manner the review of the memoir written by Mr. J. M. Keynes in the journal of the Royal Statistical Society1 had I not before perusing it publicly stated that a reply would be made to it. AS it turns out, it is solely an expansion of opinions and views expressed by Professor Alfred Marshall in recent letters to the Times newspaper,2 and which in part have already been answered by me.3 I shall take this opportunity, then, of generally analysing the reasoning oi the Cambridge economists, because the logic of both of them seems equally faulty and their tone equally regrettable.
