CHAPTER II
PRIVATE LETTERS 1840-1841

CONVERSATION (NOT IMAGINARY)
BETWEEN MR S. L. AND MRS P.
Mrs P.
Pray, Mr Landor, may I know How you intend to France to go?
Mr S. L.
Indeed, I really cannot say,
My friends must firatt' me in the way.
Mrs P.
The Diligence, or the Malle-Poste, Men generally prefer the most.
Mr S. L.
I never of such things take note ; Rather than do so-I'd be shot !
Mrs P.
Well, but the coupe's snug enough,
One must sometimes learn how to rough.
Mr S. L.
Rather than with French scoundrels go, Strike off my head, at one good blow !
'Twould drive me raving mad. Why, Zounds ! I'd rather pay ten million pounds.
Mrs P.
How woulrl you go then-would you walk ? (How wildly the poor man does talk !)
Mr S. L.
Oh, I shall take a coach and four ; Or with a courier ride before.

1 By Mr Landor, fizet was always pronounced as if the word rhymed with hut
