CHAPTER II
PRIVATE LETTERS 1840-1841

IN 1840 Landor was greatly disappointed at the postponement of a visit from his sons, Arnold and Walter. Another grief was the death of his accomplished friend, Francis Hare. In the autumn he wrote a third historical play, " Fra Rupert," a sequel to " Andrea of Hungary and Giovanna of Naples." I find no mention in these letters of an excursion to
Devonshire in the autumn of 1840; but there are lines on Torquay in the " Keepsake for 1841 "(published about October 1840); and there are verses in
Lady Graves-Sawle's album, dated Exmouth, September 1840. As usual, Landor spent the winter at Bath. Writing to Mr John Forster in December he said:-" In this weather nobody can be quite well. I myself, an oddly mixt metal with a pretty large proportion of iron in it, am sensible to the curse of climate. The chief reason is I cannot walk through the snow and slop. My body, and my mind more especially, requires strong exercise. Nothing can tire either, excepting dull people, and they weary both at once. ... Lately, from the want of sun and all things cheerful my saddened and wearied mind has often roosted on the acacias and cypresses I planted."
