CHAPTER I
PRIVATE LETTERS 1838 - 1839

Only one has thought it light. I could not think of giving "intolerable- pain" to a sister so afflicted with asthma that she cannot speak without difficulty, nor take an airing in the most easy carriage. If she has not shown the same kindness to my family as she always did to me in our early days, that is only a reason the more with me for showing my compliance with her wishes. And indeed I now find that if she had invited Julia to her house it would have been painful to them both. A vainer man might have exulted in the celebrity to be expected from Lady Bulwer's Dedication. To me it could afford neither pride nor pleasure. With the exception of Louis the Fourteenth, no man ever was so frequently mentioned by contemporary writers. The best poem, and almost the best novel, of our days, were dedicated to me" Kehama " by Southey and " Attila " by James (1); and I hear that my name is to be found in twenty places of the first authors. I wish to keep myself as free as possible from the small fry ; and, if they either praise or abuse me, that they will favour me in preference with their abuse. I have not shaken off the " mortal coil " of Lady Bulwer, but I am grateful that she has removed it.
For the remainder of my life I will keep aloof from the concerns of others. The little good I can do

1 In later years Robert Browning dedicated "Luria" and Mr Swinbttrne dedicated "Atalanta in Calydon" to Landor.
