The results I can bring forward are intended rather to encourage others 
to engage in the pursuit of these enquiries with a larger and more varied 
collection of materials than to explain very much by themselves (see Table 
XXII.). Some of the results are derived from a careful search of the “ Dictionnaire 
international des écrivains du jour, de Gubernatis” (Florence. Niccolai, 1891) 
kindly made by Dr. E. Porru. The data deal with about 5,000 writers, divided 
into seven groups according to the state in which they were born. 
Another part of the result was obtained from an examination of the 
biographical records of Italian Senators, specially carried out at the Segreteria 
del Scnato by Dr. Luigi Ferrari, assistant librarian to the Senate. These 
records concern all persons raised to Senatorial rank from 1848 to 1912, 
whether they have allowed the decree to lapse or whether they have taken 
advantage of the honour or not. We do not know the month of birth of 37 Senators.
