|LIFE OF CARDINAL MEZZOFANTI|

The only letters of this period which I have been able to procure are two, addressed to his Bolognese friends, Michael Ferrucci and Liborio Veggetti. The former (dated June 6th, 1836,) is in acknowledgment of some copies of Latin Epigrams, partly from his own pen, partly from that of the Canonico Schiassi, which Ferrucci had sent to Mezzofanti : but it is chiefly noticeable for the warm interest which it evinces in the welfare of his old friend, who had written to ask advice and assistance in his candidature for a professorship in one of the Tuscan Universities, Signor Ferrucci, some time afterwards, went to Geneva, as professor of rhetoric, but he eventually obtained an appointment in the University of Pisa, where he is now Librarian.
The letter to Veggetti, (February 17, 1838,) regards his appointment as Librarian of the University of Bologna, in which Mezzofanti had been much interested.
Dr. Veggetti still holds the office of Librarian at .Bologna. He continued to correspond occasionally with Mezzofanti, up to the period of his death.
