CHAPTER III
PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843

if it were known that Mary Boyle 1 dined alone with me yesterday-with me! so dangerous and dissolute a man ! Sir Courtenay left her under my care in the morning. He returned to Marston, so extremely ill, that I expect to hear of his death tomorrow. What a house. Poor Lady Cork in her coffin, Lord Cork struck with blindness, Lady Boyle incurable, Sir Courtenay hopeless. Lord Dungarvan and his brothers have come from Eton for the holidays. What amusements can they find in a house at all times the most melancholy in the world, and now hung with mourning all around.
Mrs Marlow has mellowed down into a rich austerity but well flavoured. Mrs Layard thaws. She was so gracious as to invite me to a musical party ; and I went. I hear that James's' "Arabella Stewart" is admirable. On Monday I shall begin to read it. I wish he could be persuaded to live in this part of the world.

1 Some very interesting letters from Miss Mary Boyle to Landor were published in the Century Magazine, February 1888, with an introduction by J. Russell Lowell. Her father, Sir Courtenay Boyle, died May 21, 1800. Lady Cork, wife of the eighth Earl of Cork and orrery, Sir Court
enay's brother, had died on November 29, 1843. Lord Dungarvan, now
Earl of Cork, was fourteen in 1843.
2 G. P. R. James had been Landor's neighbour and friend in Florence, and Landor was an enthusiastic admirer both of the man and his works. "You cannot overvalue James," he wrote to Miss Boyle ;"there is not on God's earth (I like this expression, vulgar or not,) any better creature of His hand, any more devoted to His highest service, the office of improving us through our passions." His verses on the death of James at Venice, in 1860, were printed in "Heroic Idyls," c&c., pp. 213 and 223.
