PDF | Text

Translated by Lady Claud Hamilton from the original French titled, M. Pasteur: Histoire d’un Savant par un Ignorant.

In the salon of a distinguished man, or of a great writer, there is often to be found a person who, without being either a fellow-worker or a disciple, without even possessing the scientific or literary qualities which might explain his habitual presence, lives nevertheless in complete familiarity with the man whom all around him call ‘ dear master.’ Whence comes this intimate one ? who is he ? what is his business ? He is only known as a friend of the house. He has no other title, and he is almost proud of having no other. Stripped of his own personality, he speaks only of the labours and the success of his illustrious friend, in the radiance of whose glory he moves with delight.
