Paul Bourget himself, with char- acteristic modesty, had declined the honor which his contemporaries (te- sired to pay him. It is exactly fifty years since Paul ' Bourget, then 20 years old, published his first essay, "le Roman d'Amour de Spinoza," in a small rewew. The t ' Academician of Henr:v Bordeaux re- cently mentioned this fact in a news- paper article and pointed out that this anniversary coincides with the ap- pomtment of Paul Bourget by the French Academy to the post of Con- servator of the Museum of Chantilly. As soon as this became known, many writers proceeded to sen(] messages of homage and admiration for the mag- nificent career of the Master. The colleagues of Bourget in the French Academy, the members of the insti- tute. the occupants of the highest chairs of science, literary critics and' nmny others, agreed in the statement that the juhilee should tie marked by a public manifestation, such as a sol- emn memorial sessh)n, or a banquet atended by all the famous people of tim country. M. [teary Bordeaux, who had been the lirs one to speak of such a project .was delegated to approach the great writer and inform him of the @sire of his colleagues, disciplesmd admirers. He has just published the answer of Paul Bourget: "You do not know how odious such an affair would be to me. and how painful it would be for me to appear in public in this attitude of triumph. ] am ounting on leaving soon for Costebelle, not to return until spring and my jubilee will be spent at work, which is a true feast for us writers.
