CHAPTER II

I am by no means tired of the world, and never am likely to be sentimental, but I have sometimes hours of deep seriousness, as far removed from sadness as possible. I do not write poetry on these occasions, but I sometimes translate from the Spanish. These are from Don Diaz Labrusca,(3) who appears to have been in love with a French lady. I have seen a curious fragment of his autobiography.

1 Admiral Sir Henry Baynton, K,C.B.
2 Doubtless the first volume of " Mores Catholici, or Ages of Faith," by Kenelm Henry Digby : London, 1831, &c. For some verses on his book see Landor's Works, 1876, viii. 281.
3 These verses are printed in Landor's Works, viii. 207, but with regard to Don Diaz Labrusca such books of reference as I have consulted are silent. Either he was an imaginary personage or not a celebrated one.
