Please consider the following code, which is data imported directly into
Mathematica via a .mtp file (Minitab Portable Worksheet), and then using
list assignment:

    list = {"C1" -> {5.`, 4.`, 7.`, 3.`, 6.`, 6.`, 7.`, 1.`, 5.`, 6.`}, "C2"
-> {2.`, 5.`, 6.`, 7.`, 7.`, 1.`, 5.`, 4.`, 7.`, 2.`}}

The following two commands work:

    Mean["C1" /. list]

    Mean["C2" /. list]

However I would prefer to be able to issue the following commands instead:

    Mean[C1]

    Mean[C2]

How can the code at top be converted so that these simpler commands will
work?

Thanks.
