CHAPTER II
PRIVATE LETTERS 1840-1841

a proof to me that you like novelty.... Do you fancy that no time can sober me ? The fact is, I am never less poetical or less romantic than when I think of you.... It is flattering to me to be remembered by the Duchesse de Grammont. Pray tell her so, and that I was delighted by the letter which Count D'Orsay read to me from her son on the high college honours he had attained. I have frequently heard that they are all such as a wise and anxious mother could wish them.
You know that nly hatred of politics is unfeigned you also know that the dearest of my friends are Conservatives. Neither party can ever be of the slightest use or advantage to me; and I was not very highly pleased when I was desired and invited to ask for something. If the change of Ministers(1) is beneficial to any of your connections I shall by no means regret it, for I am confident that the present men will bring about what the others failed to accomplish. The Duke of Wellington is the only man of either party in whom I can discern the semblance of greatness. The rest are clever scene-shifters and expert prompters, nothing more.

There were two Mr Bertie Greatheads (or Greatheed) of Guy's Cliffe, father and son, and nephew and grand-nephew of the 5th and last Duke of Ancaster, who died in 1809. The elder Bertie Greathead (1759-1826) was one of the group of literary triflers who about the
year 1784 founded the Society of Otiosi at Florence, and were afterwards laughed at in England as Della Cruscans. He also wrote some plays, one of which, "'The Regent," was brought out at Drury Lane in 1788 (" Dictionary of National Biography "). His son, Landor's friend and Mrs I'ercy's father, died in ltaly in 1804 aged twenty-three. Lord Charles Percy's only daughter died seven years ago. Mr Guy Duke, Landor's grand-nephew, informs me that -Mr Greathead of Guy's Cliffe was thought by some of Landor's family to have been the author of "Guy's Porridge Pot," a satirical poem in dispraise of Dr Parr, which has sometimes but wrongly been attributed to Landor himself. Bertie Greathead, the younger, could not have been the author, as the first and second editions were published in 1808 and 1809, after his death. But the elder Bertie Grcathead, who lived till 1826, may have written it. Miss Berry, Horace Walpole's friend, was a frequent visitor to the Greatheads of Guy's Cliffe. '
