CHAPTER I
PRIVATE LETTERS 1838 - 1839

seemed to change expressly for your journey. Every cloud left the sky-a few were remaining to cover a brow or two. Put another red letter to the calendar in your pocket-book, for you have performed a miracle. You were rather late. The coachman said he could not stay another minute ; I begged for three, only three, and ran like a lamp-lighter up to Gay Street. This has perfectly cured my sprain(1). Happily I had just reached York House when your carriage made its appearance. How I dreaded a delay which might have made the Admiral(2) receive you with somewhat less of pleasure in his countenance. On another occasion there would not be so very much in this : but there are few of us who do not know how a little grief swells a greater. Have you never seen two drops of rain upon a window, where the larger has been quiescent until the lesser was drawn into itthen it dropped(3). Knowing the Admiral's exaction of regularity and precision, you will acknowledge I had some reason for my apprehensions. But you know also his very great regard and affection for you -and you may not know that men sometimes look displeased when they are only pained.

1 "I forgot to tell you that I fell in Milsom Street and sprained my ankle."-Landor to Lady Blessing-ton.
2 Admiral the Hon. Frederick, afterwards Lord Aylmer, was Miss Paynter's uncle. "The Admiral" is frequently referred to in this correspondence, as well as in the verses in "Heroic Idyls," page 227.
3 "As one drop of water hath an attraction for another, so do felicities run into felicities."-Landor, Works, 1876, iv. ii.
