CHAPTER I
PRIVATE LETTERS 1838 - 1839

But Britain cried,
To me belong Trophies beneath whose shadows sung
The choir of Pallas where Ilissus flows.

Of purest alabaster, well
Expressing what our speech would tell,
Beauteous, but somewhat less divine
Than Pheidias, taught by Pallas, plan'd,
Elgin presents the only hand
That throbs not at the slightest touch of thine.
BATH, Nov. 27, 1838.

To Miss Rose Paynter in Paris.
[BATH], December cb [1838].
DEAR ROSE,
You ought to be very happy, for you have taken all our happiness with you, and you know how much there was of it. What kindness it is in you to write to me so early after your arrival at Paris. When on one side of you is sorrow at leaving the most affectionate of mothers and sisters ; on the other, all the pleasures and all the hopes inviting and soliciting you. Consider what a precious thing it is to be so beloved by everybody. It will never make you proud-Inay it always make you happy.
You had hardly left Bath before the weather
