and when he stops in London a few days next October, I will take the liberty to tell him he may call on you in my name, if you happen to be in town. He is a most amiable and agreeable person, of whom we are all very fond. Mrs. Ticknor desires her kind regards may be given to Mrs. Milman and yourself. Very faithfully yours, George Ticknor. To Count Adolphe de Circourt, Paris. Boston, May 30, 1842. my dear Count Circourt,—In your very kind and most agreeable letter, written last February, you ask me to write to you on the political prospects of the United States. More than once I have determined to do so, but have been compelled to forbear, because everything was so unsettled, and it was so uncertain what course would be finally taken. Now, however, we begin, I think, to see some of the results at which we must, before long, necessarily arrive, and having something really to say, I shall have much pleasure in saying it to you. But you must bear in mind that it is in the n

t there is no telling what will be the end of the matter, or when we shall get to Niagara. To John Kenyon, Eeq., London. March 30, 1845. . . . . With the February packet came a codicil to your kindness, again most delightful, for which we owe you more thanks. How can we render them? Come and see. Here are the Lyells comiught it wise, or Christian, to join in any such movement. The reason is obvious. Whenever the institutions of society are so far destroyed as they were in last February and March in France, I take it to be certain that they can be reconstructed only on a military basis, and—whatever may be the nominal form of government—that theegan in the South of Europe and in France last winter, because they saw plainly that, if the institutions of society are once destroyed,—as they were in Paris in February, March, and April,—they can be reconstructed only on the basis of a military despotism, and in the presence and by the authority of the bayonet. But you will,

vertible paper. It was never so before under the same circumstances, and ought not to be so now. I cannot account for it on any good principle, and do not like it in its moral aspects . . . . I had an excellent passage home, the one Mrs. Ticknor ought to have had; for she had a very bad one, and was ill after her arrival. But, as I said, we are all well now, uncommonly well, and are enjoying the season, which, for two months, has been very fine, and is still very mild. In the following February he writes: We are enjoying a much finer winter than any of the three I have spent in Italy. . . . . We have had almost unbroken bright, cheerful sunshine and a delicious tonic atmosphere. I wish you had come this way, and given us a week. Yours faithfully, Geo. Ticknor From Sir Edmund Head. Toronto, November 21, 1857. my dear Ticknor,—I got your letter this morning, and I was very glad to hear so good an account of you all. We have heard some rumors of the manner in which your mo

If your people are in the same temper about us, I think no trouble of a serious nature will arise in this generation. . . . . I have written such a long letter, about matters with which I have very small concern, that I have hardly room to send the love of all of us to dear Lady Head, and C. and A. I shall look to hear from you very soon, and to have you all again under my roof-tree in February. Faithfully yours, G. Ticknor. From Sir E. Head. ATHENAeUM, [London, ] November 23, 1860. My dear Ticknor,—I owe you another letter, were it only to thank you for your kindness in writing again so soon. I am able to say that everybody in this country sets the highest value on the courtesy and friendly bearing towards the Prince, shown in the United States. I may begin from the top, for I had the opportunity of talking both to the Queen and Prince Albert on the subject last wee
