TO HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS

THE DUKE DE BORDEAUX.

SIR,

In supplicating the favour of dedicating to your Royal Highness, this tribute of faith, enlightened by reason, I obey the esprit de corps," which unites all truth and intelligence, which revealing legitimacy in Heaven, displays it also on earth.

It is to the heir of the eldest son of the Church, to the descendant of sixty-nine most Christian Kings, that after God belongs this homage of the faith of a Christian Gentleman.

Bossuet, in one of his letters to one of my compatriots, Lord Perth, an illustrious defender of the faith, monarchical and religious, explains in three words, the path of honour and of virtue, “ Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church, and the King.” The Almighty reveals himself in these three

names.

May your Royal Highness, in whom Europe admires the greatness of character, the fortitude, intelligence, and solid piety, which serves to revive the recollection of your august ancestor, Saint Louis,-deign to protect this feeble yet zealous work; which, in proclaiming that there is no God but God, declares also that there is no King but the King.

DOMINE SALVUM FAC REGEM.

I am, Sir,
With the most profound respect,

Your Royal Highness's

Most devoted Servant,

M. D. TALBOT.
