CHAPTER IV
PRIVATE LETTERS 1844-1847

I do not envy you Dublin, but I envy Dublin you. Pray do not make the two countries quarrel worse than they are quarrelling at present.

To Miss Rose Payntey.
[BATH, May 14th 1845]
DEAR ROSE,

1 Hood's Magazine, vol. iii., p. 329 (1845), contains Landor's verses to Major-General Sir William Napier

Knowing this, I fixed my determination many years ago."-Landor to Lady Blessington, Nov. 1844. He was seventy on Jan. 30, 1845, but the resolution was broken.
