Notes Chapter V
1. Essex (U.S.A) Institute Bulletin, 1885.
2. As English archers invariably adopt the word 'loose' to describe the act of quitting the string, that term is used instead of Professor Morse's 'release.'
3. Ceylon, vol. i. p. 500. Sir E. Tennant gives here several references showing that the practice of drawing the bow with the foot prevailed in ancient and modern times, especially in India, and also in modern times in South America.
