CHAPTER III
PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843

and Landor, the poet's oldest surviving friend, was active in advocating a public recognition of his merits as a distinguished man of letters. He also wrote an inscription for his tomb at Bristol, but this was not accepted.

To Miss Rose Payiitey.
SUNDAY MORNING [May 15, I842].
DEAR ROSE,
Down to the present hour I have received no letter from Arnold. I wrote to him on the twelfth of April, and desired he would set out from Italy on the first of May at latest, and give me notice a few days previous. The blowing up of the train at the Versailles railroad 1 has filled me with terror and dismay. I cannot help thinking it possible that he may have been upon it. Rarely as I have any painful or unpleasant dream, I dreamt on the morning of the sixth of May that he was dead. It is said that every man has some superstition. I have none-absolutely none. But I have always felt beforehand a fainter or stronger intimation of coming evils-in such a manner as to leave me no power of obviating them. I remain in the house all day. I stand on my feet at every knock,

1 May 8, 1842.-" Horrible occurrence on the railway between Paris and Versailles. ... The list of killed was officially set down at fifty, but it was generally thought that many more perished in the flames." -" Annals of our Time."
