Scope and content

Deloitte, Plender, Griffiths & Co., 18 rue Chauveau Lagarde, Paris (VIII.e.). - Their 'dear friend' Félix Gicquel died last night at home; he became ill with a high fever a month ago and declined inexorably, with 'signs of an awful despair' all the worse because of the 'enthusiasm & fine spirits' of so recent a time. The place Félix had in Hardern's life for four years will 'ever remain vacant', and he cannot bear the loss: if he loves France so much, it is because Félix taught him to. Is almost sure that Madame Gicquel will 'never recover': her husband told him last night that he thought her end would 'follow her son's quite close'. Would like to hear from Trevelyan very much, and asks him to call on him at the above address if he comes through Paris.
