SANDFORD AND MERTON IN FRENCH.

THE STORY OF SANDFORD AND MERTON. By Thomas Day. Translated into French by M. Berquin. Designed as a Reading-book for Juvenile classes.

From Professor Brégy, of the Philadelphia Central High School. PHILADELPHIA, January 24, 1848. GENTLEMEN-No better idea could have been suggested to you than that of republishing this work of Berquin.

Among the French popular writers he occupies a place secondary to no one; the purity of his style is unsurpassed, and he has been properly called the Historian of Young age, which he pictures both as it is and should be.

The morality of all his works tends to awake the noblest and purest sentiments of the mind. With my best wishes for the success of the work, should you publish it,

I remain yours, most respectfully,

F. A. BREGY.
