Excerpt from Letters of Prosper Mérimée to Panizzi, Vol. 1

It is regrettable that a translation, however perfect, commonly fails to do full justice to the original. The turn of phrase, the delicate finesse of an expression, the elegance, pathos or humour of a sentence, are points difficult to render, and yet there are a great number of zealous students unfamiliar with any but their native tongue - to whom translations are indispensable, as being the only means whereby they can acquire the infer mation of which they are in quest.

By way of introduction to this interesting Col lection of Letters, a brief sketch of their author and his life may possibly be acceptable to the reader, and not altogether inappropriate.
