Extent of London.


So as[1] the People of Paris according
to the above account[2], is
488,055[3] 693,055[4]
Of Rouen according to Monsr. Auzout's
utmost demands
Of Rome according to his own report
thereof in a former Letter[5]|11|
So as there are more People at London than at
Paris, Rouen and Rome by
Memorandum, That the Parishes of Islington,
Newington and Hackney, for which onely there is
any colour of Non-contiguity, is not 152 part of
what is contained in the Bills of Mortality, and
consequently London, without the said 3 Parishes,
hath[7] more |12| People than Paris and Rouen put
together, by
[9]Which number of 114,284 is probably more People than
any other City of France contains. |13|
