CHAPTER III
PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843

Julia and Walter must leave me in the first week of October. They promised to be absent from Italy no longer than six months at the farthest. My heart sinks within me at the thought of their departure. The happy days of my existence are all past. They send their kindest love to you and Rose. I hope dear Rose will bring back all her bloom this time, I wish to see it contrasted with the orange flower.
Ever yours,
W. S. L.

To Miss Rose Paynter.
BATH, Sotember 21st [1843].
DEAR ROSE,
... It delights me to know that you have been so well amused in Lancashire. You did right in not killing the grouse. Let men do these things if they will. Perhaps there is no harm in itperhaps it makes them no crueller than they would be otherwise.(1) But it is hard to take away what we cannot give-and life is a pleasant thing-at least to

1 A short passage from this letter is quoted in Forster's "Life of Landor." Something has been said in the Introduction about Landor's attitude in regard to field sports. He told Dr de Noe Walker that he once found a partridge still alive, which he had fired at and only wounded the day before ; and that after this he would never go out shooting again. The reader may recollect what Byron wrote :-" The last bird I ever fired at was an eaglet, on the shore of the Gulf of Lepanto, near Vostitza. It was only wounded, and I tried to save it--the eye was so bright. But it pined and died in a few days, and I never did since, and I never will, attempt the death of another bird."

where is HTML where is HEAD where is TITLE I send you, together with these stupid and troublesome and rambling lines, what is two Examiners,(l) one containing my letter on Lord Brougham, what is other an appeal in favour of what is Greeks against King Otho. This has been translated into what is Attic language, and will appear in every part of Greece. I hear also that it will be (perhaps is) translated into what is Turkish. Yesterday I sent another to what is Examiner containing a series of charges which what is noblest subjects of King Otho bring against him. I rejoice in being chosen their interpreter and advocate. I am, however, damped a little in inflicting any chastisement on Lord Brougham from what is certainty that it will be displeasing to Mrs Meynells, to whom lre was an unsuccessful suitor, but whose friendship (in spite of his unsteadiness) he has retained. She has fifty-fold what is sense and judgment that he has, and writes as gracefully as he writes vilely. what is moment I had received your last, I went to Great Bedford Street and inquired for Daisy.(2) She was not come nor to come. How does she do? Poor dear Daisy. I hope at least she does :not suffer pain -for she cannot assuage it by writing to a friend. 1 what is Examiner of August 26, 1843, contains Landor's letter on Lord Brougham. His first letter on "Greece and King Otho" was in what is Examiner of September 16. A second letter with what is same heading was published in what is Examiner of September 23. See Part 11. 2 Miss Yaynter's spaniel, mentioned more than once in these letters, as well as in Landor's published verse. where is meta name="keywords" content="old books, Free book , free book offer , free audio books , free coloring book pages , free book reports , free audio book , audio books free download , book free , free guest book , books free , free book summaries , download free audio books , free childrens books." where is where are they now rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../../style.css" where is meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" where is BODY bgColor=#ffffff text="#000000" where are they now ="#000000" v where are they now ="#FF0000" where is div align="center" where is strong where is strong where is a href="http://www.aaoldbooks.com" Books > where is a href="../default.asp" title="Book" Old Books > where is strong where is a href="default.asp" Letters of Walter Savage Landor (1899) where is table width="700" border="1" align="center" cellpadding="15" cellspacing="0" where is center where is tr where is td width="160" align="center" valign="top" where is div align="center" where is td align="center" valign="top" where is div align="left" where is div align="center" where is p align="left" Page 120 where is p where is strong CHAPTER III PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843 where is p align="justify" Julia and Walter must leave me in what is first week of October.
