The Legendre numbers, Pnm, are expressed in terms of those numbers, Pkm1, in the previous column down to Pnm and in terms of those, Pkm, above but in the same column. Other results are given for numbers close to a given number. The limit of the quotient of two consecutive non-zero numbers in any one column is shown to be 1. Bounds for the Legendre numbers are described by circles centered at the origin. A connection between Legendre numbers and Pascal numbers is exhibited by expressing the Legendre numbers in terms of combinations.
