Little need be said, at the present day, of the importance of a knowledge of the French Language. It is the key to immense treasures in literature and science, the medium of communication in European diplomacy, and is, confessedly, an indispensable accomplishment of the modern traveller and the man of liberal education.We have, therefore, only to explain the object and claims of the present work.
