CHAPTER I
PRIVATE LETTERS 1838 - 1839

de Sevigne to Chateaubriand : in other words, the very best to the very worst.
So I find that you have been made acquainted with Lady Bulwer's (1) declaration of hostilities against me. I disdain all defence. He who wants any deserves none. The two notes will serve perfectly

DEAR LADY BUL\VER,
By this morning's post I have received a letter which obliges me to entreat your patience. It appears to be known among my friends and relations that you intend me the honour of dedicating your novel to me. The report was first spread, I believe, by the person or persons whom Fraser engaged to read it over. Now I have been implored by those whose happiness and contentment I feel myself most especially bound to consult, "never to allow my name to be implicated in matters of such delicacy:" I have been implored not to give intolerable pain to a sister,

Wild Irish Girl." He seems never to have met her, but Lady GravesSawle writes :-" Lady Morgan was our nest door neighbour in William Street, in the fifties. She took a fancy to me, and liked to drive with me. She was a very small woman and contrefaite; with fine expressive dark eyes, and abundance of Irish wit and dash. She used to send her invitation cards to dinner with `Cotelette Musicale' in the corner. Ministers, ambassadors, poets and painters met under her diminutive roof, and who so happy as their hostess ! She was very fond of her nephews and nieces, and used to say that nepotism was maternal instinct gone astray."
1 Lady Bulwer (Rosina, Lady Lytton) had intended to dedicate her novel, "Cheveley," to Landor, whom she knew in Italy, and later in Bath. Her reminiscences of Landor were published in Tinsley's Maaazine, June 1883. "Gheveley; or, the Man of Honour," came out, in the end, with a dedication, dated Bath, March 27, 1839, "to No One Nobody, Esq., of No Hall, Nowhere." The husband of the authoress was not the only real person satirised in the book ; Landor's friends, Lady B1essington and Mr Forster, both coming in for their share of detraction.
