CHAPTER III
PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843

IN 1842 Landor received a visit from his eldest son Arnold ; but not much is said about it in his letters. He seems to have gone twice to London. His account of a visit to the Royal Academy in the spring or early summer may perhaps be held to refute the justice of Edward FitzGerald's observation that Landor " appeared to judge of pictures as he does of books and men, with a most uncompromising perversity which the phrenologists must explain to us after his death." His artistic sense was not always perverse, though he often went strangely astray through a want of technical knowledge.
In the autumn of 1842, Landor was again in London, this time to attend the marriage of his niece, Miss Stopford. Next year he was visited by his son Walter, and his much-loved daughter, Julia, of whom he writes with the fondest affection. Of his literary pursuits at this period, and of the unabated vigour of his mind, there is proof in the critical studies of Catullus, Theocritus and Petrarca, written for the Foreign Quas-tei-ly Review, some imaginary conversations printed in the " Book of Beauty " and Blackwood's Magazine, and numerous letters to the Examiner. Robert Southey died in March, 1843,
