CHAPTER V
PRIVATE LETTERS 1848-1857

Letters of an American" were dedicated to Mr Gladstone, whom Landor had forgiven for his " Homeric Studies." Then came that unhappy volume " Dry Sticks fagoted by Walter Savage Landor." It contained much that was interesting, not a little that one can read with delight ; and one or two things which any publisher possessed of moderate intelligence must have seen ought not to be printed. There were other printed leaflets which should never have got abroad. But the whole subject is inexpressibly painful, and one shrinks from repeating the story. It need only be said that, not without good grounds for taking offence, Landor found himself indicted for libel, and had to leave the kingdom. He was never to see England again ; nor were his bones to be laid in the restingplace he had chosen in Widcombe Churchyard.

To Mrs Graves-Sawle.
BATH,Jan. 18, 1848.
... Death last year took aim at sne but missed me. Let him take another as soon as he pleases, but pass by those I love. I have lost my kind friend, Joseph Ablett.(l) He died on the ninth after a relapse. My sister too has been seriously ill for several weeks, but her day is not yet come, and I hope it may be yet

1" Poor dear Ablett, at whose house we were to meet in the spring, died on the 9th (January 1848), and I can remember few things that have caused tears to burst forth from me as this did. ... Good generous Ablett ! One more tear for thee !"-Landor to Mr Forster.
