Excerpt from Dante Arthur as in the Celtic lands. TO be recorded on vellum, and laid up in libraries, was a fortune too high for the half-developed tongues in which mothers murmured over their children and masters ordered their servants good enough for such everyday uses, but for nothing more. The stately Latin, the Catholic language, was the inheri tance of all who knew; it had the advantage Of reaching that oligarchy in all the corners Of Europe, iitespective of the differences in their common dialects - and this nuques tionable advantage gave a certain reasonableness to the preference of the learned for the language of learning.
