Carlo Giuseppe Guglielmo Botta (1766-1837) to Felix C. Albites (?-?) Paris, 23 August, 1832
Carlo Botta was an Italian historian and patriot. This letter is addressed to another author, Felix C. Albites, who was much less famous than Botta. In his letter Botta thanks Albites for having sent him his works. In a previous letter, Albites had most likely expressed his esteem for Botta, and Botta probably felt honoured by this sentiment.
I have just received yesterday your kind letter and your works […] I will surely read them all soon with great pleasure and interest. I thank you cordially for this gift and for your praise […] I wish to meet personally with a man who is paying homage to me, like you do […].
