Excerpt from Dore Gentle Buyer! the following Letters were written during a year's residence in Europe. As they were written on a third visit to that country, they will he like a man selecting his third wife, t caught by glare r dazzled by show. They will endeavor to call every thing by its proper name, and thing by an improper one. Therefore, when they meet Mephistopliiles dressed like a lord, and blazing with the ruddy gold, glancing at his club foot, they will t hesitate to say, Sir, you are the devil! Dore means simply the difference between the inside and outside of things, and as this difference has always struck the author more than any thing else in Europe, he has adopted that title more as a fit emblem of the position of the Old World than as a representation of the general tone of this work, which is merely a hook of travels, as little in the style of the guide-books as possible.
