TREATIES, EMINENT PERSONS,
LATITUDES AND LONGITUDES.
The Treaties of Peace have the same kind of formula as the Modern Battles. A few of these were given in the Modern Chronology, but for greater convenience, they are repeated here, together with all the most important National Treaties of Modern Times. The parties concerned in the Treaties, must be learned from the Table, as in the case of Battles, as it was not thought advisable to mention them in the formula. The formulas for the eminent persons, require but little explanation. Those for the Ancients, give simply the date. The date given is usually that of the death of the person; but where the era of the death has not been known, the date of the birth, or the time the person flourished, is given. In the Table on page 158, "fl." shows that the date is the time the individual flourished, and "b." the time of the birth. Where neither of these are given, the date may be considered the time of the person's death. In the formulas for the persons of Modern time, the Phrase translates first to the date of the person's death, and the two remaining articulations stand for the age. If the date of the birth is wanted, it can be obtained by subtracting the age from the date of the death. As in all other modern dates, if the first articulation does not stand for figure 1, that figure must be supplied, to give the correct date.
For the formulas of the Latitudes and Longitudes, we have this rule:
The first two articulations stand for the Latitude, and all that remain, for the Longitude.
Latitude, being always under 90°, never contains over two figures; and if the latitude is less than 10°, the first articulation stands for a zero.
