Maurice Harriet (1814-1904), a priest born in Haltsu (province of Lapurdi), deserves special attention as the author of the biggest Basque dictionary, unpublished however up the present.
   Pierre Lhande (1877-1957), while making the Dictionnaire Basque-Français (Paris, 1926), used the material gathered by Harriet, in greater measure than he acknowledges in the preface of this work. We can sum up by saying that Lhande's dictionary, limited however to the Basque provinces of France, as announced in the subtitle ("Dialects Labourdin, Bas-navarrais et Souletin"). This will be fully evident when we have the complete edition of Harriet's dictionary.
   Moreover, the note deals with some characteristic of this dictionary and some features of the life of Harriet.
