I know the ""Mysteries of Paris"" very well, & much admire the genius which radiates, from end to end, through that extraordinary work [...] the writer, if of less general power than Balzac, is still more copious in imagination & creation. He glories in all extremities & intensities of evil & of passion [...] he has written other romances [...] ""Mathilde"" interested me beyond them all, & consists of some seven or eight volumes [...] but except for the insight it gives into French society, I am not sure that you wd be pleased with it [...] I have been thinking that the American translation in which you read the ""Mysteries,"" may probably be a [italics]purified[end italics] edition, of which I have seen some notices."
