CHAPTER II
PRIVATE LETTERS 1840-1841

Here is a portrait of a Dauphine of Auvergne. I remember to have seen a descendant of hers surprisingly like it, after two centuries and more. The most beautiful face among the portraits is the Queen of Prussia's, by Gosse.l Never was wounded pride so delicately exprest. She is in the act of being received by Napoleon. She suppresses the swelling heart and rises with majestic beauty above the man who conquered only her kingdom. You yourself would not have been greater in her place ; and only a few of your enthusiastic admirers would find greater beauty in the expression of your countenance. You see I have not learnt to flatter by my recent intercourse with the French. . . .
Sincerely and affectionately yours,
W. S. LANDOR.

To Miss Payider al Versailles.
BATH, July 24th [1841]
DEAR ROSE,
It delights me to find that I have not entirely slipt out of your memory. ... I have little news for you. A few weeks ago I went over to Clifton to visit Lady Belmore. ... A good many people were assembled that morning, and before I went away
