CHAPTER II
PRIVATE LETTERS 1840-1841

a fortnight for them to stay with my sister, and another fortnight to divide among my other relatives who have invited them. Arnold says he cannot stay beyond two months in England, since it grieves him to leave his mother for a longer time. I cannot blame him nor argue with him on that point. It shows an affectionate heart which I am pleased at finding, although I may grieve in secret that it does not lean a little more toward me. I shall ask him only one favour ; which is that he will allow me to show him

Friends," to which Landor was the chief contributor. To Ablett was addressed Landor's " Ode to a Friend" :

Lord of the lonely plain
Where Celtic Clwyd runs to greet the main,
How happy were the hours that held
My friend (long absent from his native home),
Amid those scenes with thee ! how far afield
From all past cares, and all to come !

Ablett ! of all the days
My sixty summers ever knew,
Pleasant as there have been no few,
Memory not one surveys
Like those we spent together : wisely spent
Are they alone that leave the heart content.

I never courted fame,
She pouted at me long ; at last she came,
And threw her arms around my neck and said,
`Take what hath been for years delayed !
And fear not that the leaves will fall
One hour the earlier from thy coronal,' &c.

These verses were first printed in Leigh Hunt's London journal, Dec. 3, 1834. A r facinzento of the poem was published in the same periodical on April 15, 1835
