ANG ER S. Father Dufrou, a Priest of the Congrega. tion of the Oratory and Professor of Rhetorick in this University, lately made a Latin Oration, wherein he enquired into the Reasons why the French Historians fall fo short of that Degree of Perfection which is required in such Performances : Cur nullum Scriptorem optima notæ Historia Gallica habeat. Two things, said he, are absolutely necessary to qualify a good Historian, Eloquence and Sincerity ; eloquentia & fides : but these two Qualifications cannot be found in an Historian who lives under a despotical Government. He made feveral judicious Observations on the first Point ;

and and as to the second, viz. Faithfulness and Sincerity, he said that a French Historian cou'd hot pretend to it, i. Because he was ignorant of the Spring of Actions, or what was transacted in the Cabinet of the Prince. 2. Because he muft either flatter or incur the Hatred of those who are in Power 3: That even the Christian (Romish) Religion he professes, cannot suffer him to be always true and sincere. He observed that Comines, Thuanus, Mezeray, and Daniel the Jesuit, were defective in several respects: However as to Mezer ay, he infinuated that he would be valued and esteemed by all Frenchmen; as long as a Love for Truth and a Sense of Liberty remain'd amongst them į when Father Daniel will be despised; as a Man blindly ad. dicted to the pretended Power of the Pope maintained by the Italian Clergy, and bafely wedded to the Interests of his Society. The Jefuits cou'd not bear with these bold Affers tions. They apply'd to the Heads of our University, and demanded that the Orator shou'd be punish'd or severely cenfur'd; but cou'd obtain no other Satisfaction than the following Decree, which is rather an Approbation than a Censure of what Father Dufrou said : Existimamus aliquas Propofitiones, si disjungantur à Sera monis contextu, Suspicionem, mali Animi injicere potuisfe : verum fi eadem penfentur prout in Orati onis ferie jacent, malitiæ Suspicio diluitur, Qnatot tamenmonendus eft ut cautior fit.
