A visit to Russia
Heron, Denis Caulfield
I had the honour of an invitation to the International Statistical Congress held at St, Petersburg last August. This was the eighth of the series of similar Congresses which have been held. The first Congress was at Brussels, in 1852; the second, at Paris, in 1855; the third, at Vienna, in 1857; the fourth, at London, in 1860; the fifth, at Berlin, in 1863; the sixth, at Florence, in 1867; and the seventh, at the Hague, in 1869, All the statesmen of Europe have, on every question of international law or international tariffs, acknowledged the great benefits to Europe and society resulting from these Congresses. And in the present paper I wish only to communicate to the Society, of which I am a humble member, some of the information about Russia which I acquired under the many advantages I enjoyed as a member of the Statistical Congress.
