Taken in any other sense they are incorrect, and one might almost say absurd. Beyond such limits as are above defined, the description of fasciae by continacity is, it is submitted, wrong in principle, incorrect, and misleading. The only absolutely correct basis of description of the several fascisa in particular is one which should elicit and explain their structural and physical characters, as observable in the several regions of the body.

Where preuure and friction are greatest, the condition is most marked--fascia late on outer side of thigh. Where pressure and friction are less, the reverse condition presents--fascia on inner side of thigh;--strength and density increasing, however, pari passu with pressure and friction, as one approaches the knee, and still further so as one passes to the inner side of the leg, where the fascia does not difier very greatly from that on the outer side.
