CHAPTER V
PRIVATE LETTERS 1848-1857

property for life, and afterwards to a very distant relative. By a strange oversight the will authorises him to remove the books, pictures, and a noble statue by Gibson. I know it was not so intended, and he himself declared that he never would remove them in her lifetime ; but all last week was spent in their removal. He says he is one of the elect, no doubt he is, but who is the elector? Poor Mrs Ablett is sadly hurt. .. I have raised her spirits a little, and she wishes me to prolong my visit, but go I must, for I shall have only three days to spend with my brother Robert, with whom I promised to stay a fortnight.
Little did I think my brother Charles (1) would have died before me. He seemed to have life enough in him for fifty men and fifty years. He was the finest man and almost the wittiest and most spirited I ever knew. To lose so early a companion as Charles, and so kind a friend as poor Lady Blessington (2) within so short a space of time bore heavily on my spirits. ... Walter, who is much gratified by your kind remembrance is going to spend a few days at Llanthony. We shall meet again only a day or two before he returns to Italy.
Believe me, dear Mrs Paynter,
Very sincerely yours,
W. LANDOR.

1 The Rev. Charles Landor died July 1849
