|LIFE OF CARDINAL MEZZOFANTI|

The Cardinal's sister, Teresa, (mother of the deceased prelate,) although she was ten years his senior, was still living in their old home at Bologna, and he continued to correspond with her up to the time of his death. His letters to her are all exceedingly simple and unaffected—-so entirely of a domestic character, and without public interest, that, if I translate one of them here—the latest which has come into my hands —it is merely as a specimen of the warmth and tenderness, as well as deeply religious character of the Cardinal's affection for his sister and for her children.
