page no 179 note * De Morgan, who was no bad judge, was much more appreciative. In Notes and Queries, 2nd Ser., Vol. IX (7 Jan. 1860) he said: “Bayes shows a very superior mathematical power: and Laplace, who makes but slight mention of him, is very much indebted to him. Accordingly, Bayes is one of the chief leaders in the mathematical theory of probabilities. What he did was of small extent, judged by paper and print, but of fundamental importance and wide consequence: he is of the calibre of De Moivre and Laplace in his power over the subject.”
