BEING A LECTURE, DELIVERED AT THE THEATRE OF THE

PHILOSOPHICAL INSTITUTION, BRISTOL,

FEBRUARY 20, 1854,

BY JOSEPH LEECH.

«« "Έπεα πτερόεντα”-Hom. ΙΙ. 1. ν. 201.

LONDON:-HAMILTON, ADAMS, & CO.

BRISTOL :-JOHN RIDLER.

1854.

TO THE LECTURE COMMITTEE

OF THE

BRISTOL PHILOSOPHICAL INSTITUTE,

(AT WHOSE REQUEST IT WAS DELIVERED),

reel, DF 4-26-34

THE FOLLOWING IS RESPECTFULLY INSCRIBED.

This Lecture, though delivered, is not printed, by

request.

But the writer having taken some little trou

ble in compiling it, ventures to publish the trifle,

chiefly because the means of committing it to the press

at little cost to himself are at his command. There

has been rather a long interval between its delivery

ard publication, owing to its having been put aside

from time to time for more urgent engagements. This

delay, however, has enabled him to increase the number

of his examples; and for some of those added since the

Lecture was originally spoken, he is indebted to the

kindness of M. H. V. de Candole, of this City, whose

opportunities and reading enabled him to supply those

not within reach of the writer.

It will be seen that in some few instances the

French of the phrases has been retained; but this is

only the case where the writer could not satisfy him

self that translation conveyed their full force.

BRISTOL,

August 12, 1854.
