Excerpt: ...published in 1783, &c. "Quand il est mort, il n'a point son eleve" 157 --says his old and intimate friend the ABBE BETENCOURT; an observation, which, when I heard it, filled me with mingled regret and surprise--for why is this valuable, and most patriotic of all departments of literature, neglected abroad as well as at home?

That mutual knowledge brought us quickly together, and made us as quickly intimate. The Abbe is above the middle height; wears his own grey hair; has an expressive countenance, talks much; and well, and at times drolly. Yet his wit or mirth is well attempered to his years.
