[312] destinee, et vous n'avez pas le droit de nous regarder comme des êtres inferieurs. En voila assez la — dessus. Vos amis les Ultras sont toujours en colere, et nous detestent beaucoup. Il y a eu quantite de duels. Ce qui est horrible, les querelles politiques deviennent des querelles privees. Cela naegaye pas Paris. Le reste est toujours de meme, les salons comme vous les avez vu, beaucoup de vanite, peu d'affection.

Victor, Auguste, Mlle. Randall,1 tout cela pense a vous. Vous nous avez tous gagne le coeur. Je ne sais pas si vous avez assez de vanite pour être content du succes general que vous avez eu ici. Au reste, vous avez plus d'orgueil que de vanite, comme nous avons dit.

N'oubliez pas mes livres americains. Parlez moi un peu de laetat religieux de l'ecosse, et de l'angleterre. Vous savez que ce sujet m'interesse. Mais, je vous promets de ne pas y meler du mystere. Dites moi aussi, si l'on vous parle de l'ouvrage de ma mere.

The brother of Madame de Broglie, Auguste de Stael, a young man of distinguished ability, and of a singularly pure and elevated character, was one of those who, like Cesare Balbo, formed a warm and lasting friendship for Mr. Ticknor. An early death cut short the high career of the Baron de Stael, and caused a loss both to friendship and to letters, which Mr. Ticknor always continued to regret.

In concluding a short note, dated March 17, 1819, M. de Stael says:—

1 The Duke de Broglie, the Baron de Stael, and Miss Randall, who was a faithful friend of Madame de Stael, and her companion during the last years of her life.
