Minot, an historical writer and effective public speaker. As early as 1799 he accepted an invitation from Josiah Quincy to a desk in his law-office; and was, while the relation continued, accustomed to have charge of the office, and to sleep in Mr. Quincy's house on Pearl Street during his absences from the State.

Next heard Rossi, who was the first lecturer that I heard in Paris, less than three weeks ago. Then I could not understand a senteon de Gerando's. He is apparently about forty or forty-five, and is modest in his manner. He did not produce the impression of remarkable talent. After Pellat, I heard, at the Sorbonne, a part of the lecture of Geruzez Nicolas Eugene Geruzez, 1799-1865. He was, from 1833 to 1852, the substitute of Villemain in the chair of Literature.
