CHAPTER V
PRIVATE LETTERS 1848-1857

To Mrs Paynter.
[BATH, Jan. 20, I854.]
DEAR MRS PAYNTER,
This morning I receive notonly your congratulations on my birthday, but Mrs
Sawle's. This is anticipation. Mine is on the 30th. Before my breakfast-cloth is removed, I write a quatrain to her which you will see on the other side.
Sir Roderick Murchison (1) has made me several visits with his lady. The world owes to his inductive reasoning the discovery of gold in Australia and California. Twelve years ago he found that the same strata which form the Ural Mountains ran throughout the Cordilleras of America and Australia. The Emperor of Russia was intimate with him alone. Had he been sent to Petersburg, he would have averted a war which will be more devastating than any since the creation. It will, however, end well for humanity.
Ever truly yours,
W. S. LANDOR.

1 ' Sir Roderick (then Mr) Murchison was introduced to Landor at Tours, in 1815, by Francis Hare. See the verses to Sir Roderick Murchison in "Heroic Idyls," p. 112:
" O Murchison !
Why hast thou looked so deep into the Earth,
To find her treasures ? Gold, we thought, had done
Its worst before," &c.
