“One of the most charming epistolary commentaries on the general European history of the twenty years between 1850 and 1870 which it is possible to conceive.

“So many, so fresh, and so striking are the lights which these charming compositions throw upon the politics of the period of the chief incidents of which Paris, London, Berlin, and Vienna were the centres-upon the state of the capitals themselves, and upon the influences which were at work, that after having read them, it seems impossible to understand the subjects to which they relate without having read them. Prosper_Mérimée was the prince of modern letter writers. His French was always easy, elegant, and intensely idiomatic, and it has been translated by Mr. Dunstan into English as pointed and as swift almost as the letters of Byron."-World.
