CHAPTER IV
PRIVATE LETTERS 1844-1847

To Mys Graves-Sawle.
BATH, Sept. 26, 1846.
DEAR MRS SAWLE,
It was only on Friday night that I returned from a visit to Crosse, not having gone at all into Devonshire. Kenyon was with me. His conversation and Crosse's made four days pass away delightfully. At Taunton I met Mr Kinglake the author of " Eothen," and dined at his mother's. Never was a day spent more to my satisfaction. Indeed I may say that in seven years I have not passed seven consecutive days so pleasantly as those seven. I find on my table a great number of gift books. Among the rest Lord Nugent's "Lands Classical and Sacred." (1) I am reading it with much interest. I think you will do the same. Miss Garrow has also sent me her translation of Niccolini's " Arnold of Brescia." (2) Niccolini is more like Alfieri than Sophocles, and more like Sophocles than Shakespeare. . . .
Believe me,
Ever your affectionate friend,
W. S. LANDOR.

1" Lands Classical and Sacred," by George Grenville, Lord Nugent. London, 1845. Lord Nugent, grandson of the Lord Clare to whom Goldsmith addressed " The Haunch of Venison," was an old friend of Landor's, who often visited him about this time at his place near Aylesbury. He died November 26, 1851. See "Dry Sticks," pp. 18 and 161 ; and " Heroic Idyls," p. 242.
2"Arnold of Brescia, a Tragedy, by Gio. Batt. Niccolini ; translated by Theodosia Garrow." For an anecdote about Niccolini, "as modest a man as he is a distinguished poet," see Landor's Works, 1876, vi. 223.
