Excerpt: ... committee of the Highland Society was put in possession of such returns as enabled them to review the experience of upwards of seventy Friendly Societies, for periods of 3,10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 years. The inquiry was confined at first to the age and sickness of the members, and was not extended to deaths, from a reluctance to load returns otherwise sufficiently difficult to obtain.

The following is the average annual sickness to .
