The message is relatively clear. ;-)
It means the number of elements in the mh1.epidemic(n,x1[i],x2[i])
vector isn't a multiple of the number of elements in X[i, ]. In the
standard case, you want these two vectors to be of the same length, and
there are too many or too few elements in mh1.epidemic(n,x1[i],x2[i]).
You can check that with by looking at:
length(mh1.epidemic(n,x1[i],x2[i]))
and
length(X[i, ])
