April 8. Had a treat to-day of an opposite kind from that of yesterday, —heard M. Coquerel1 preach, and thought him truly eloquent, and much superior as a preacher to M. Dupin as a lawyer.

1 Athanase Laurent Charles Coquerel, 1795-1868. This French Protestant divine, born in Paris, preached twelve years in Holland, and returned to Paris in 1830. He served, in 1848 and 1849, as a moderate Republican, in the Constituent and Legislative Assemblies.

He withdrew from politics upon the coup daetat of Louis Napoleon, and thereafter devoted himself exclusively to his profession.
