is necessary that tho wholo question should

Admirers of lhlzaowlllbo clad to hear
Hint live unpublished letters of the groat
novelist have Just been brought to light by
M Dupontavlie do llcusso), who has
written n very Interesting account ot u visit
nicdo by Balzac to tbo Brittany town of
'luugcns In lb33. Tho previous year ho
had embarked upon nn cutcrpriso that had
uearl) ruined hi in nud all his family. Ho
had nailed outiu Ufa with the Idea that ho

obliged to liquidate lu order to avoid fail
ure n t cry ft I toils thing In this country.
Btfore undertaking this pi luting scheme,
Balzac had alriadj written at least twenty
romances, all signed b) fictitious namej,
and when he fouud himself overwhelmed
by ids first flnjiiclal catastrophe ho had
several uthiro biforo his death ho set res
olutel) to work again with his pen to repay
tlio money loaned hlni b) his father nuil
niolhir. 'llio llrst novel of that tnirv clous
monument mlltd thu "Comedlo Hiimaluo"
signed by Ids name was tho Cliouan", which

alists against the llrst republic. To vvrlto

wns laid, und to do so ho asked tho hos

of dajn visiting tho country and githerlng

do Pommcreul, who Is still llvlug, says that
thcro then was so much kindness, artless

acting and spciklug that It w.aslmposslblo
to know him w Ithout lov lug him. An I bo
thies, he was ulwnjs in such sad humor
