This Letter contains several offensive and extrava. gant Expressions. Servetus was a great Zealot, as inost Hereticks are : Can it be expected that a Zealot should keep within the Bounds of Moderation ? Besides, it ought to be considered that he lived in an Age, that was not so polite as ours; in an Age wherein the Great Calvin himself did not scruple to call himn a Dog, even in his Commentaries upon the Bible. The Hererodox Writers of our own Time have much ado to observe the Rules of Decorum: They break out sometimes into unbecoming Expressions. I really believe that Servetus expected to suffer Death for his Doctrine some time or other. I am, SIR,

Yours, &c.

HE Abbot Fontanini is printing a Catalogue of

Cardinal Imperiali's Library. That Library con. Gifts of many Choice Books; and that Catalogue is drawn up in a very good Method.

M.

.

Billecoq has published a Book that will be of

Use to the French, and to Foreigners. He thought it necessary to print the Rules of the French Pronunciation.

Les Regles de la Prononciation de la Langue Françoise, Par Monsieur B. Parts, 1711. in 12 mo. pagg. 356.

The Author owns thaç Pronunciation is to be learned by Use; but because there is a right and a wrong Pronunciation in Use, he thinks they cannot be well di. ftinguished without Rules. The Rules prescribed in this Book, contain all the Difficulties of the French Pronunciation, disposed in an Alphabetical-Order, and expressed with great Perspicuity.

A Third Edition, very much enlarged, of M. de la Mothe’s Odes is lately come out.

Les Odes. de Mr. de la Mothe de l' Academié Françoise, avec un Discours sur la Poesie en general, & sur l' Ode en particulier. Troisiéme Edition augmentée de plusieurs ouvrages, Paris, 1711. Two Volumes in 12mo. pagg. 293, and 305.

Six new Pieces have been added to the first Vos lume, viz. Five Odes, and a Poem in the Praise of Homer. M. de la Mothe designs to publish a French Translation of Homer's Iliad in Twelve Books. He takes a great Liberty in his Translation, and leaves out whatever appears to him unworthy of that Excellent Poet. The Author feigns, in one of his new Odes, that Homer appears to him and prescribes to him the following Rules.

CH

WHOISIS; tout n'est pas precieux.

Prens mes hardieffes sensées,
Et du fond vif de mes pensées
Songe toûjours à t'appuyer.
Du reste' je te rens le maitre.
A quelque prix que ce puisse être
Sauve moi l'affront d'ennuyer.

Rens ce nombre, cette cadence,
Dont jadis je charmai les Grecs.
Sois fidele au ftile heroique,
Au grand séns, au tour pathetique,
Enfans d'un travail aflidu.

Si la Parque me remettoit au bord François.
Croi que de plus d'une harangue
ľ abregerois mes longs combats :
Mes herós dignes de leur gloire,
Impatiens de la victoire,
Vaincroient & ne se loueroient pas.

Du faux merveilleux de la Fable
Més vers le feroient garantis,
Et j'y tiendrois au vrai-semblable
Les Dieux même assujetis:

There are Eleven new Odes in the second Volume, besides fome other new Pieces.
