ons wishing to reach Rome from the north. Turin, September 29.—We have not been out to-day, exame back, and was still not permitted to enter Turin, but passed two years more in the country; becved there most happily, and continued happy in Turin after his return, till the death of his wife, ase, I learn, are as follows. When he reached Turin, Italy was full of trouble in consequence of tme time at a villa he had somewhat remote from Turin. He in fact spent several months there, and betely, except that in winter, when they are in Turin, he lodges with his father and mother. It is s villa, . . . . about six or seven miles from Turin. . . . . Our road was for some time on the bant I was struck with meeting so many persons at Turin whom I knew at Madrid.

s not seem to be thirty-five years old; but he must be older, and is one of the finest-looking men I have seen in France. He is, too, acute, and has winning manners. I do not wonder, therefore, that he is popular. This morning, after some general conversation, he was curious to learn from me any particulars I could give him about Mr. Edward Livingston, on whom it is his duty, as Secretary of the Academy of Moral Sciences, to pronounce an éloge next spring. Count Balbo, who is here from Turin, on account of the death of Villeneuve, father of his late wife, dined with me; and we had a great deal of agreeable talk upon old matters and old recollections, as well as upon things passing. Afterwards I went with him to see Mad. de Pastoret, the Mad. de Fleury of Miss Edgeworth. See Vol. I. p. 255 et seq. Madame de Fleury is the title of one of the Tales of Fashionable Life, by Miss Edgeworth, which is founded on incidents of Madame de Pastoret's experience. M. de Pastoret receiv

Chapter 17: Italy. winter in Rome. Florence, Turin, Paris. letters to Mr. Prescott, Count Circourt, and Mr. Greenough. To William H. Prescott. Rome, November 24, 1856. Dear William,—. . . . We have had delicious journeyings, fine weather without interruption. . . . . The consequence is that we have enjoyed ourselves very much. Indeed, I doubt whether a gayer party has crossed the Alps this year; and now we have been four days settled at Rome, at the Hotel des Iles Brrom her as we should from few. You see I write in haste, by my manuscript. I have no more such leisure as I had in Rome, dear old Rome; but such as I have, leisure and everything else, I give unto you. G. T. To William W. Greenough, Boston. Turin, May 22, 1857. my dear Greenough,—I am indebted to you for two most agreeable letters, and I do not suppose I shall ever pay you. But honesty requires me to confess what I owe, and give you such a poor dividend as I can out of my insolvency.

llences in rhyme and in his native dialect. . . . . Elsewhere there was music, and a little dancing, but not much, though enough to enliven a scene that was the most riant that can be imagined . . . . The cynosure indubitably was Mad. de Castiglione, a Sardinian lady, with all the attributes of Italian beauty added to an English complexion of purest red and white,—generally seeming as unmoved as if she were of marble, but warming to a very beautiful smile when I told her I had lately been at Turin . . . . . She was dressed with good taste, no doubt, but in the extravagance of the French fashion, and looked as if she had just walked out of Watteau's pictures of a garden scene in the time of Louis XV . . . . . Everybody stared at her, and yet, they say, she does not think she is admired here so much as at home, and rather complains of it. Lady Theresa asked for my arm, and I walked round with her and saw everybody and everything in the most agreeable manner, and gossiped and heard go
