Excerpt from Memoirs of Prince Metternich, Vol. 5

The family and private correspondence of Prince Metternich, which served the reader as a guide through Books IV., V., and VL, ceases with the year 1829. Nearly all those near and dear friends of the late Chancellor's, with whom he kept up a familiar inter change of ideas, were torn from him in quick succession by death. With Gentz. Who died in June, 1832, and who, for several years before his death, had ceased to render aught but 'imaginary' services, one of the most important of this friendly band of correspondents dis appears. Neumann, indeed, lives on, but the corre spondence with this trusted friend is only of a desultory character, and is concerned too exclusively with purely business matters for its contents to bc available for the purpose of our biography. To all this must be added that the life of the Chancellor now moves in quieter channels. Neither Congresses nor other affairs of great moment necessitate his undertaking long journeys, or being absent for long together from the family circle, and the Opportunities for writing to those left behind naturally become fewer.
