lr. lninsrV Trip.
Space prohibits any thing further than a
brief synopsis of Dr. Fling's trip abroad.
Jitter we hope to publish a fuller account.
Dr. Fling reports a most delightful sea voyage
to France., even remarkable in the fact that
no one on board suffered from sickness.
Until July loth Prof, and Mrs. Fling work
ed in the ' 'Archives of Foreign Affairs." using,
among other records, the correspondence of
the French minister in London. Here of
course they found some very valuable original
material on the life of Mirabeau.
July loth they left Paris and visited several
places of interest including Tout's. This
part of the trip was spent principally in study
ing the geography of the country and obtain
ing photographs. Two days were spent at
the llede lie in visiting the citadel, now used
as a convict prison, where Mirabeau was con
fined. A visit was also made to the house of
th i Governor who ruled the island in the time
of Mirabeau. At the llede lie he met two
historians who had discribed the life of Mira
beau at It: and from one of them obtained a
letter to an historian at Salutes. II "re he
saw the tower wheiv Mirabeau was confined
and the hous: in which he lived.
He then visited Bordeaux and Pan. While
at Pau Dr. Fling wrote a review of a French
work on the Involution. This review will
appear in the next issue of the "American
He next visited Careassone. perhaps one of
iHie best preserved, fortified medieval cities.
At Marseilles he saw the chateau dTf, author
of the Mirabeau prisons. In the Provence he
visited Aix. the place where Mirabeau lived
for -soiiri tim? and Avas murrie-tl. "While lh?re
ho met a man who had made a special study
of Mirabeau for over forty years, and through
him obtained the use of a great deal of valu
able material and the promise of further help
there sailed for America. Dr. Fling procured
many valuable pictures: but the thing which
delighted him most was the discovery of an
unpublished manuscript of lo pages, written
by Mirabeau himself. This manuscript will
furnish some very valuable material on the
life of Mirabeau and his relations to the gov
ernment. Dr. Fling's trip abroad brought
the University of Nebraska into prominence
in Franca, because of the necessity of obtain
ing permission from the French minister to
use the material in the Archives and to obtain
entrance to the prison.
