CHAPTER IV
PRIVATE LETTERS 1844-1847

hear was a very serious illness. ... Last evening, when I attempted to open my writing-desk,(1) I found it quite impracticable. I do not believe the people of the house are capable of any kind of dishonesty, but it appears that my landlady was afraid of leaving it in my room, and took it into hers. So it got shaken and a good deal injured. She is unwell, and wrote me a note telling me that her nerves will never be right again while she has the charge of such precious things in her house, and that (at my convenience) she hopes I will resign her lodgings. On this, I went instantly and engaged rooms at No. 2 in this Square ,(2) where I go the first of September. I hate to move, and I never can hope to live again in any Square. This grieves me. It is now eight years within a month that I have resided in St James's. I have a cat-like attachment to places. Talking of cats I must not forget to mention a couple of dormice given to me by Mrs Ravenshaw (3)-playful pets and dear delights to me. . . .
Believe me,
Sincerely yours,
W. S. LANDOR.
