Excerpt from Les Aventures de Telemaque, Fils d'Ulysse, Vol. 2

At length Telemachus replied with a disordered 'and? timorous voice,,l am not _at my own disposal: Destiny re'cals me - to my country. Mentor who is endued with:. The wisdom of the Gods, commands me in their name to depart. What would you have me do Shell I renounce' my father, my mother, my country, which ought to be': yet dearer to me than they? As I am born to be a king, 1 am not designed for a life of pleasure and repose. Nor to follow my own inclinations. Your kingdom is richer and more powerful than that of my father; but I ought to prefer that which the Gods have allotted me to that _which you-have the goodness to offer me. I should think myself happy, were Antiope my wife, without any hopes' of your kingdom; but to render myself worthy of her,. I'mustgo where my duty - calls me, and itmust be my fa ther who demands her of you. Did you not promise to Send me back to lthaca. Was it not upon this promise that.i, - 1with the allies, fought for you against. Adrastus.' It 15 time for me to think of repairing my domestic mis fortunes. The Gods who gave+ me to Mentor, gave* Mentor also to the son of Ulysses, that he might fulfil the decrees of fate. Would you have me lose Mentor, after having lost every thing else I have now neither estate nor place of retreat, nor father, nor mother; nor° any Certain country; nothing 1s left me but a Wise and virtuous man, who 15 the most precious gift of Jupiter. Do you yourself judge if I can renounce him, and consent that he should forsake me. No, I would sooner die. Take my life, my life' s a tri?e, but - take not Mentor from me.
