LIFE OF CARDINAL MEZZOFANTI
Home > Mezzofanti > Biography > 1834 > Legrelle

The same curiously delicate power of " discriminating the various dialects of the language, and of distinguishing by their accents, the inhabitants of the various provinces of Belgium," are attested by another member of the same society, Father Legrelle, On the eve of this gentleman's return to Belgium, he asked the Cardinal to be so good as to write his name in his Album de Voyage. On the very instant, and in F. Legrelle's presence, his Eminence penned these Flemish verses, which he gave to M. Legrelle as a souvenir :

God wept, en wyst den weg tot de volkomenheid ; Hoort zyne stem, myn Vriend, de stemme der waerheid.
