D. Thiebault : Anecdotes of Frederick II

'We received the Books a week ago ... We have all already to thank you for a great deal of delight which we have received from them ... I have not quite finished the anecdotes of Frederick which I find exceedingly amusing; and instructive, also, as giving a lively portrait of the hard-heartedness and selfishness, and servility of the courtiers of a tyrant, and of the unsatisfactoriness of such a life.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Dorothy Wordsworth      Print: Book
