CHAPTER I
PRIVATE LETTERS 1838 - 1839

To Miss Rose Paynter.
[BATH, May 1839]
DEAR ROSE,
Mr Mogg has just sent to tell me that he leaves Bath on Wednesday morning, and, after a few days in London, will proceed to Paris. I might run up to Great Bedford Street (ecco il giovanotto ! run up!) to remind Mrs Paynter and your sister that if they have anything to send, they must prepare. You will have heard from them all the news. Have you as good to send in return ? I mean to them, not to me? But take care I do not hear all about it, for I am very sly-worse than you suppose, which is bad enough. ... This letter of mine is not very likely to reach you before the end of a fortnight. I shall request Mr Mogg to leave it at M. Charles Lafitte's, Place Vendome, and perhaps it may be best if you send to the same address the little parcel for Italy.
Believe me, dear Rose,
Yours very sincerely,
W. S. LANDOR.

1 Reduced in numbers as my family has been within the last few years, my spirits, would hardly have recovered their habitual and healthful cheerfulness if I had not prevailed upon Miss Bowles to share my lot for the remainder of our lives. There is just such a disparity of age as is fitting ; we have been well acquainted with each other more than twenty years, and a more perfect conformity of disposition could not exist ; so that, in resolving upon what must be either the weakest or the wisest act of a sexagenarian's life, I am well assured that, according to human foresight, I have judged well and acted wisely, both for myself and my remaining daughter. God bless you! ROBERT SOUTHEY" (Southey to Landor, March 31, i839). Sottthey married Miss Caroline Bowles on June 5, 1839.
