Jacques Barzun was my mentor and friend, largely by correspondence, for well over forty years. The tributes rightly praise his encyclopedic mind, his intellectual generosity, his wide-ranging curiosity, his embodiment of excellence. Let us not forget that joined to his remarkably well-stocked mind, his sense of fairness, his delight in debate, was what I would call his sense of mirth. "From Dawn to Decadence" may portray decline, but as he observed it, Jacques always seemed cheerful, and amused.
