[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] Sin,—Last year, in the Long Vacation, my son attended a course in French Language and Literature at the University of Clermont, the advantages of which I wish to make known to other parents. The course of 4, 6 or 8 weeks, with 12 hours' tuition weekly, is extremely moderate in cost—Fes. 50, 75 or 100, plus entrance fee fcs. 80. Lodgings and meals are arranged for two-thirds of the usual prices. The Professors will give private tuition if desired, and excursions are organized during week-ends for seeing the surrounding country, which is very beautiful and interesting. The only regrettable thing was that there were only from 9 to 15 students, men and women, from various countries, who took advantage of these excellent opportunities last year.

Anyone wishing for further details should write to M. Aug. Audollent, Le Doyen de la Faculto des Lettres, Universite de Clermont, Clermont-Ferrand, Puy-de-Dame, France.—
