translated by me as literally as possible some few years since from the French original of Dr. Valentin, the eminent physician at Nancy-who published in France an interesting account of a visit or pilgrimage he made to Jenner, of whom he became an enthusiastic admirer-to his old friend in London, M. Dubois de Chemant, the surgeon-dentist, should be recorded in 'N. & Q.' Jenner, it may be noted, only just previously to its date, died by an attack of apoplexy, at Berkeley, in Gloucestershire, aged seventy-four :
Nancy, February 5, 1823. SIR AND OLD FRIEND,-I happen to learn that Dr. Jenner is dead. I had written him twice last summer to get information upon a fact which interested him. I did as much with Mr. Ring; [but] neither of them made reply. I have some uneasiness upon the existence of the latter, who has given me no sign of life for more than three years, and who was so punctual. I desire to know, first, of what malady Jenner died, and whether it was at Berkley. [To this query is added in the opposite margin "Ask Mr. Ring," apparently by M. de Chemant.] Secondly. how many children he leaves, and whether the son that I have seen with him has adopted the same profession. Thirdly, the titles of the works which he has published since that in which he announced his discovery of vaccination. I pray you to obtain from some physician well informed, and who knew him, replies in writing to these questions. If Mr. Ring exists, no one better than he has it in his power to answer them. You will have the goodness to then send them for me. Mr. Ring knows the subject which determined me to write to them last year, and upon which I desired information. If some one publishes his eulogy, send it me. How is your health and that of your wife? Ours are passable. We were both at Paris last summer. I took a journey to Italy in 1820. which has fortified me and given me embonpoint. I embarked at Marseilles for Naples; from there I tra

(Concluded from p. 244).-I have since looked up travelling so much. I there made the acquaintance of, traversed Savoy and Switzerland. Never did I enjoy Mrs. Pitt's petition (No. 47, in vol. lxxxiii. of the and even travelled with, the youngest son of Lord Spencer Treasury Papers). It merely states that Sir [the Hon. Geo. Spencer (born December 21, 1799), Henry Fane, surreptitiously and unknown to peti- youngest son of Geo. John, the second Earl, who came tioner's husband, obtained a new grant for the to see me here, and who dined at my house [on] returnground without the park wall from King William, ing to England towards the end of the autumn of 1820. Do you know his address? He was entrusted with a to the great prejudice, loss, and damage of her packet for Mr. Ring; I never knew whether he remitted husband and family. This hardship being after-it. If Dr. G. Pearson is in London, recall me to his wards represented to the king, he examined into the matter, and after perusing the SurveyorGeneral's report, ordered that full satisfaction be made to her according to the recommendation of that report, as will appear at large by the several papers now lying in the Council Office." Petitioner has, however, not received a penny from the Treasury since the above order was made, and is thereby reduced to the utmost extremity of want and misery. Consequently she applied to the queen to consider her hard case and give her relief. The petition was referred to the Lord High Treasurer. A minute, bearing date March 3, 1702/3, records his decision: "There is no pretence for relief from ye Queen."

If you can, in your reply, send me the address of Dr. Physical Journal, you will oblige me doubly.

would not care to be considered a Manxman; and although English is of Teutonic, yet Englishmen would open their eyes wide if called Dutchmen.
Centuries change a lot, but the change wants a lot, it appears, of explanation. Now as to Welsh Lord Mayors of London. I think I have unearthed one of the most ancient records of Welsh gentlemen who have filled this important office. In 1273 I find Henry le Waleys was made Lord Mayor of London, and, more than that, was Mayor of Bordeaux in 1275.* Of course it must be admitted that Le Waleys means the Welshman.
