Septembat I have seen few things since I left that home which have given me more heartfelt pleasure. Milan, October 1.—We again commenced our journey early this morning, and when the sun rose found ourseth and frolics of the vintage till, after passing through a great number of villages, we entered Milan. . . . . In the evening I presented my letters to the Marquis, or Abbate, de Breme, a man of s before; and a Russian general. . . . . The whole drive was about thirty-five miles; we reached Milan at eight o'clock, and we all dined very happily with the Marquis. Placentia, October 9.—While of the patricians, and a few men of letters—I have passed my evenings as pleasantly as I did at Milan, with De Breme and Count Confalonieri.

There we talked until dinner. Mad. Arconati is a sweet, winning, intellectual lady of the simplest manners, entirely devoted to her husband, whose fortunes she has followed in his exile,—though she might have lived in great splendor at Milan,—and to her son, who is now a student at Bonn of much promise. The Marquis is a frank, high-minded gentleman, and Arrivabene is an original thinker, who is much valued by Whately, Senior, and that set of men, and who was consulted upon the subject of the English Poor-Laws by the committee of Parliament, in whose proceedings his report fills a considerable space.
