Leaving London on the 23d of October, with intent to pass the winter in Dresden, the first point of pause on the Continent was Brussels, where Mr. Ticknor arrived on the 6th of November, but, to his regret, found that his friend, Mr. Hugh S. Legare,—then United States Charge d'affaires in Belgium, —was in Paris. The season, of course, was dull, the Court absent, and little of interest in the local society. Mr. Ticknor, however, saw M. Quetelet and one or two other persons whom he was glad to know, and describes, in the following entry in his journal, the beginning of a delightful acquaintance with a charming circle.
