WORKS HE STUDIED.
THE KIND OF LITERATURE THAT IN
lie Fell Under tho Influence of Abbo Itay
nnl, Who Advised II Im to Head Mure
IJcfore Writing Ho Was Vnrtlal to His
tory, Politics mid Geography.
Rousseau had been tho prophet and
forerunner of tho now social dispensa
tion. Tho fichomo for applying its prin
ciples is found in a work which bears
tho namo of a very raediooro man, tho
Abbo Raynal, a man who oujoyed in
his day an extended aud splendid repu
tation whioh now appears to havo had
only tho slender foundations of uumor
itod persecution nnd tho friendship of
suporior men. In 1770 appeared over
his namo a volumo of which ho was tho
compiler, but not tho author. "Philo
sophical and Political History of tho
Establishments and Commorco of tho
Europeans In tho Two Indies" is a mis
cellany compounded of oxtracts from
many sourco3 and of Bhort essays by
Raynal's brilliant acquaintances on su
perstition, tyranny and similar themes.
Tho reputed author had written for the
pnblio prints and had published several
works, nono of whioh attracted atten
tion. Tho amazing success of this ono
was not remarkable if, as the critics
now beliove, at least a third of tho book
was by Diderot. Tho position of tho solf
styled author as a man of letters imme
diately bocamo a foremost ono, nnd such
was tho voguo of tho work that tho au
thorities finally becamo alarmed. A
dramatic climax to Raynal's renown
was secured when in 1781 tho vol
umo was condemned to bo burned and
tho writer fled for safety into oxilo. Tho
storm had finally subsided, ho had re
turned to Franco, and communication
was opened between tho groat man and
his aspiring reader.
"Not yot 18, ''aro tho startling words
in tho lottcr writtou by Bonaparte, "I

inoloso chapters 1 aud 2 of a his
tory of Corsica, with an ontlino of tho
rost. If you approve, I will go on; if
you adviso mo to stop, I will go no fur
ther. " These ohaptors as thoy camo to
Raynal's hands aro not in existence, so
far as is known, aud posterity can rfbver
judge how monumental their author's
assnranco was. Tho abbo's roply was
kindly, but ho advised tho uovico to
completo his researches and thon to ro
writo his pieces. Bonaparto was not
unwilling to profit by tho counsels ho
reooived. Soon after, in July, ho gave
two ordors toaGonovoso booksollor, ono
for books concerning Corsica, another
for tho memoirs of Mmo. do Warensand
her sorvant, Claudo Anet, whioh aro a
sort of supplement to Rousseau's "Con
fessions. " Tho young historian's lottor

do Romusat, but in attompts at novol
writing to roliovo tho tedium of idle
hours. It is Raid that first and last Bo
naparte read "Werthor" five timos
through. Enough remains among his
boyish soribblings to show tho kind of
fantastic dreams both of lovo and of
glory in which ho indulged. Many on-
tortain a shrowd suspicion that amid
tho gayoties of tho wintor ho lost his
heart, or thought ho did, and was ro
pulsod. At least, in his "Dialoguo on
Love," written five years later, ho says,
"I, too', was onco in love," and pro
ceeds, aftor a few linos, to decry the
sentimout as harmful to mankind, a
something from which God would do
woll to emancipate it. Thero seems to
havo been in tho interval no opportuni
ty for philandering so good as tho ono
ho had enjoyed in tho drawing rooms of
Mine, do Colombior. It has at all events
beon tho good fortuno of that excellent
and charming woman to seouro, by thid
supposition, a plnco in history not mere
ly as tho influential patroness of Napo
leon, but as tho mother of his first lovo.
But these woro his avocations. The
real occupation of his timo was study.
Besides reading again tho chief works
of Rousseau aud devouring tho Abbe
Raynal, his most boloved author, he
also read much in tho works of Voltaire,
of Filangieri, of Neoker and of Adam
Smith. With notobook anfl pencil bo
extracted, annotated and criticised, his
mind alert and every faculty bent to tho
cloar apprehension of tho subject in
hand. To tho conception of tho state as
a privato corporation, which ho had
imbibed from Rousseau, was now adcJod
tho conviction that tho institutions of
Franco were no longor adaptod to 'tho
occupations, beliefs or morals of her
people, and that rovolution was a neces
sity. To judgo from a momoir prosonted
somo yoars later to tho Lyons Academy,
ho must havo absorbed tho toaohiugs of
tho "Two Indies" almost entire
Tho consuming zeal for studios on tho
part of this incomprohonsiblo youth is
probably uuparalloled. Having road
Plutarch in his childhood, ho now de
voured Herodotus, Strabo and Diodorus
China, Arabia and tho Indies dazzled
his imagination, and what ho could lay
hands upon concerning the oast was
soon assimilated. England and Germany
noxt engaged his attontion, and toward
tho close of his studios ho booamo anion t
in examining tho minutest details of
Fronoh history. It was, moreover, tho
soionco of history and not of literature
whioh ocoupiod him dry details of
rovenue, resources and institutions. Thp
Sorbonno, tho bull Unigonitus aud
church history m gouoral, tho oharaotor
of peoples, tho origin of institutions, tho
philosophy of legislation all thoso ho
studied, and if tho charaotorof hisnotos
is trustworthy with somo thoroughness.
Ho also found timo to road the master
pieces of French literaturo and tho
great critical judgments whioh had beon
pa&sod upon them. Professor William
