CHAPTER III
PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843

He knows you lovely, thinks you wise, And still will think so, while your eyes
Seek not in noisier paths to roam, But rest upon your forest-green, And find that life runs best between
A tender love and tranquil home.

To Miss Rose Paynter.
[GORE HousE], Wednesday, Sept. 7 [1842].
DEAR ROSE,
It is my intention to write you not a note but a letter, such as was occasionally the custom in this country and some others, even at so late a period as 1839 or '40-in short, within the memory of man. To be circumstantial-which I seldom am-I arrived at Gore House early on Monday. In the morning, beside Lord Allan, and some other people, there called Lord Auckland,(1) whose administration as Governor-General of India has been lately so much condemned. At dinner the Duc de Guiche, Sir Francis Burdett,(2) and Sir Willoughby Cotton.(3) I had

1"The Opposition continually taunt the present Government with having approved of Auckland's policy, when it appeared likely to be successful, and now finding fault with it when unexpected failure and disaster have occurred." "Greville Memoirs," Sept. 3, 1842.
2 Sir Francis Burdett had been the friend and disciple of Horne Tooke. He was for thirty years Member of Parliament for Westminster; but from 1838 to his death in I844 he sat for North Wiltshire.
3 General Sir Willoughby Cotton commanded the Bengal column in the Afghan expedition of 1839. He afterwards held the chief command
in Afghanistan till his departure in November 1840. I cannot identify the ruins referred to by Sir W. Cotton, but Cunningham in his "Ancient Geography of India," regards Jalalpur, on the banks of the Jhelum, as the site of the once famous city of Bucephala, founded by Alexander, in honour of his charger, killed in the battle against Porus. Sir Willoughby Cotton has not always been fairly treated by historians of the first Afghan war. Sir William Fraser, in his Memoirs, described him as "one of the finest types of soldiers that I have known ; combining determination, courtesy and sagacity."
