CHAPTER II
PRIVATE LETTERS 1840-1841

second. The Hanoverian Minister, very attentive to Miss Power,(1) a Carlist viscount, and Lord Pembroke (2) were the only persons who stayed any time in the box. I had not seen Lord P-- for twelve years. He is grown old, and almost plain. Yesterday he dined with us : otherwise we were alone. Immediately after breakfast I went to introduce myself personally to Colonel Stopford.(3) We had been long acquainted by correspondence ; and if there is not too much pride in me to say it, with mutual esteem. A more gentlemanly or more noble-minded man I never conversed with. His wife was overjoyed at our meeting, talked to me of Llanthony, and of the walk I took her over the hills, and of the grouse we started. Presently came in the Minister of Caraccas and General Millar, who took the command of the armies of Columbia on the retirement of Bolivar. Stopford was the Adjutant-General. They are great friends. He seems very intelligent, is extremely handsome for a person no longer youthful, but suffers from several wounds, one of which penetrated the liver. Neither of these men think highly of Bolivar as a soldier; both of them like all his family, and

1 Lady Blessington's niece.
2 Robert, 12th Earl of Pembroke (1791-1862).
3 Colonel Stopford, formerly in the Guards, had married a Miss Thuillier, Mrs Landor's sister. He went to America to become AdjutantGeneral in the army of Columbia, under Bolivar. Landor dedicated the first volume of the " Imaginary Conversations" to him.
