CHAPTER I
PRIVATE LETTERS 1838 - 1839

Some the stern Fates will never lend,
And all refuse to stay.

I see the rainbow in the sky,
The dew upon the grass,
I see them, and I ask not why
They glimmer or they pass.

With folded arms I linger not
To call them back ;'twere vain
In this, or in some other spot,
I know they'll shine again.

AN ALABASTER HAND(1).
PRESENTED TO MISS PAYNTER BY LORD ELGIN.
He who, rais'd high o'er wars turmoils,
Rescued from Time his richest spoils,
Had laid them at thy feet, O Rose !

1 These verses were afterwards printed in "Dry Sticks." Lady Graces-Sawle writes:-"Among the many distinguished English families who had taken up their residence in Paris, partly from motives of economy, partly for the sake of the society, was Lord Elgin, of Elgin Marbles reputation, and to him I showed with pride Mr Landor's letters. Lady Elgin's salon was the rendezvous of all the celebrities to be met in Paris. She conversed in French with remarkable fluency, and a marked Scotch accent, on eN -ety subject of interest on or off the lapis. Mesmerism had a great charm for her, and I well remember her and some of her guests sitting in a row, all waiting to receive the mesmeric influence of Dr Gilbert. Hahnemann, the Homccopathist, was also to be seen there. On my leaving Paris Lord Elgin sent me a marble hand, restraining a bird, accompanied by a note couched in terms of such affectionate interest that I have preserved them among my treasures of the past."
