CHAPTER III
PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843

he is weary and stiff: a long line of light and ripples shows you his track : the moon is half above the hills he has left behind him : and he has this very instant frightened from the shallows a flock of wild ducks: they fly away and leave him to his weariness and his solitude. He seems to be as conscious of the one as of the other. Such is the power of Landseer, who knows the hearts of all the brute creation.(1) I only wished that you could see these pictures, though I am not among the privileged who attend you on such occasions. At this distance I cannot mar your pleasure by my remarks.
A German boy named Rubenstein (2) (I think) has been playing to us on the pianoforte. Never did I hear anything so wonderful and of so pure a taste at the same time. Wonder, where it exists at all, generally predominates over every other feelingnot so in him. He appears to be about eleven or twelve years old.

1 " Do we never see the past and the future in the pictures of Edwin Landseer I who exercises over all the beasts of the field and fowls of the air an undivided and unlimited kingdom, Kai vbov 9yvw." Landor's Works, 1876, viii. 365.
2 "We have little faith in prodigies, less patience to see the best years and hopes of a child's life expended and prematurely destroyed in the mechanics of musical education. But it is absurd to be beyond the will or power of making exceptions ; and we must needs do so in the case of this young pianist (M. Rubenstein). As to age, a year more or less is of little consequence ; and whether he be accepted as eleven, or rated as fifteen, he is remarkable as a player,"-Athenceum, May 21,1842.
