Excerpt from A Few Thoughts on Commission, Divisions of Profit, Selection of Lives, the Mortality in India, and Other Subjects Relating to Life Assurance, Contained in a Series of Letters Recently Published in the Post Magazine: Under the SignatureMoreExcerpt from A Few Thoughts on Commission, Divisions of Profit, Selection of Lives, the Mortality in India, and Other Subjects Relating to Life Assurance, Contained in a Series of Letters Recently Published in the Post Magazine: Under the Signature of CritoThe following letters were originally forwarded to the Post Magazine, (a useful periodical, containing the reports of Life Assurance Companies, and other information interesting to assurers), as the different subjects happened to be brought before the mind of the writer by accidental discussion, or in the course of business. He has been induced to revise them for republication, from the conviction that some of the facts and figures will be found useful for future reference, and that it would be more convenient to have them collected together rather than to search for them, as scattered through the pages of a magazine.The rates of Life Assurance premium for foreign risks are still in a very unsatisfactory condition, and many years must elapse before any information, that can be depended upon, will be available for the different companies. In fact, it is doubtful whether any, which can be considered of real value to the offices, will be gathered except from their own experience, collected from as many as are willing to furnish the facts, and combined for the purpose of affording a sufficient number for classification, according to the different climates. In the meantime, however, what is already known may serve as a foundation for more extensive enquiries, or at any rate for additional means of comparing and correcting the results. The letters respecting the mortality in India, therefore, are intended to bring into one point of view such information as has been already given to the public on this subject, and by a general summary of the facts, reduced to one standard of comparison, direct attention to the deficiencies, which still remain to be supplied. These observations form but a very small division of a most extensive and interesting enquiry, to which the attention of the statist can scarcely be more usefully and practically directed.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
