Mes rêves peuvent me tromper sur la nature des autres, mais ils sont infaillibles dans le portrait qu'ils me donnent de moi-même, si peu flatté qu'il soit.

What does 'si peu flatté qu'il soit' mean?

Vedas,

Thanks for that!

Hello,

I don't think that anybody would use such an expression today (even in literature), moreover few French natives would be able to understand it!

Yes Robert ,on reflection I think I was right after all  (so many  negative words in the sentence -tromper ,infaillibles ,peu etc must have confused me...).

My translation looks alright now.
