DURING 
the Peace of 
Amiens, 
West, 
like 
every other person who entertained any feeling 
of admiration for the fine arts, was desirous of 
seeing that magnificent assemblage of paintings 
and sculptures, which constituted the glory and 
the shame of Buonaparte's administrat-ien. He 
accordingly furnished himself with letters from 
Lord Hawkesbury, then Secretary of State, to 
Mr. Merry, the British representative at the 
consular court; and also with intmductions 
from 
Monsieur 
Otto, 
the 
French 
minister 
in 
London, 
to 
the 
most distinguished members of 
his government.
