CHAPTER III
PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843

Colonel Hamilton Smith,(1) a man of more extensive and more accurate information than any in existence. There was a regatta on Thursday-which of all uninteresting things is to me the most uninteresting. However I thought my dear Julia might be amused by it, but she understood as little of the matter and enjoyed it as little as myself. She did not receive your letter until she reached the rectory at Colton. You may fancy that either I am or am about to be a bishop by my visitations among the clergy. We proceeded from Colton to my brother Robert's at Birlingham, and after resting at Bath for a day or two hurried again into Devonshire. ... Colonel Smith tells me that I am expected by Sir Samuel ATeyrick (2) at Goodrich. He possesses you know the finest and most complete collection of ancient armour, &c., &c., of any in the world. It is more authentic

1 The joint author, with Sir Samuel Meyrick, of "Costume of the Aboriginal Inhabitants of the British Islands, &c." London, 1815.
2 Sir Samuel Rush Meyrick, of Goodrich Court, Herefordshire, was the author of "A Critical Inquiry into Ancient Armour, as it existed in Europe, but particularly in England, from the Norman Conquest to Charles IL," a magnificent and learned work published in 1824. On his death, in 1848, his collection of armour became the property of a cousin, and was sold, mostly to M. Spitzer, the English Government having declined to give f50,000 for it. Landor's verses to " Meyrick, surrounded by Silurian boors," are printed in his Works, 1876, viii. p. 176. In another poem there is mention of
" The treasures round each trophied wall,
where armour of past ages shows
How brave were some whom no one knows."
-Works, 1876, viii. 319
