The above tables derive from a record of the votes kept by Cardinal Gerdil, found among his manuscripts at the College of the Barnabites at S. Carlo ai Catinari in Rome, and published by Pierre Vachoux, Extraits inedits de la correspondance & des manuscrits du Cardinal Gerdil (Annecy 1867), Chapter II, pp. 39-56. Regrettably, the record extends no farther than January 14, 1800. The record indicates that voting had settled into a more-or-less fixed pattern by December 23. Cardinal Gerdil's tally reached a high of 14 votes on December 19, and thereafter his chances gradually evaporated. Cardinal Albani's chances were doomed by Christmas Eve; he and his supporters switched their support to Cardinal Bellisomi. From Christmas Day, the candidates of the two factions, Cardinal Bellisomi and Cardinal Mattei, excluded each other from gaining the two-thirds (24 votes) necessary to be elected.
