CHAPTER I
PRIVATE LETTERS 1838 - 1839

grievously afflicted by a hopeless malady of many years, when I had destroyed, with my own hands, the most elaborate of my works,(1) lest it tnight disquiet the peace of my mother, then in perfect health. Do not imagine, dear Lady Buhver, that I consider the expression of your friendship as a light and valueless distinction : I trust I shall be worthy of retaining it, and not the less for the sacrifice of my pride to the sacredness of my affections.-I remain,
Dear Lady Buhver,
Your ever obliged,
W. S. LANDOR.

ANSWER.

Dear MR LANDOR,
You need not fear. The Dedication shall be with pleasure withdrawn, as I dislike Dedications at all times, and should be sorry to compromise you, even in the moral and virtuous atmosphere of Gore House. I remain (privately)
Your sincere friend,
R. LYTTON-BULWER.

Rude as the close is, yet it was impossible I could doubt that the Dedication was withdrawn if not " with pleasure " at least with complacency. A virtuous and right mind tivould at once have approved of my motive; and it seems impossible to me that any language could be more proper than my letter. I
have submitted it to the judgment of four friends.

1 This seems to refer to a projected history of his own times. "I attempted to trace and to expose the faults and fallacies of every administration, from the beginning of the year 1775. I was born at the opening of that year ; and many have been my opportunities of con versing, at home and abroad, with those who partook in the events that followed it. On looking over the large quantity of materials I had collected; and of the papers I had composed on them, I found, among the latest, no mild reprehension of some living statesmen. . . I threw these papers inte. the fire, no record of them is existing."-Landor's
