Burman, from Customs of the World, ed. Walter Hutchinson (1912)

The statistical association between criminality and smoking is very strong, observes Dalrymple (from 06:08 in the video).

The association, he points out, is

much stronger than the connection between criminality and poverty. It’s much stronger than the connection between criminality and unemployment. It’s very nearly as strong as that between criminality and tattooing.
