Memoir of Count Giuseppe Pasolini

Excerpt from Memoir of Count Giuseppe Pasolini: Late President of the Senate of Italy I had hoped that it would have been the privilege of my son to know and love his grandfather during many years of honoured old age, and to learn from his lips life-long lessons of wisdom and virtue. But, contrary to all expectation, my father's life ended before my child was old enough to know him, or even be conscious of having seen him. In the unspeakable grief of our premature bereavement, it occurred to me to note on paper, as best I could, a few intimate personal recollections, so as to keep them always fresh in my mind; but the investigation of my father's private notes and correspondence brought to light such a mass of interesting documents as induced me to over-pass the limits of the intended domestic history, and I have thus been led to compile the present memoir. Before doing so, I consulted my best friends, who were of opinion that since my father, during his public life, was on terms of intimacy with the Princes who chiefly furthered the cause of Italy, and with all the most eminent men of his time, it would be desirable and useful to give to the world a selection from his private records of persons and events. Such is the origin of this book. I relate the life of a man who, under circumstances of extreme difficulty, in troublous times, faithfully acted up to that high sense of duty which was ever present in his mind, above all considerations of personal pleasure or convenience; a man of most tender and gentle character in his domestic relations.
