CHAPTER V
PRIVATE LETTERS 1848-1857

My wife's grandfather was general in the Austrian service ; his son was a republican and ultra even at Geneva. He placed his money in a mercantile house at Cadiz ; he lost part, but going over there took possession of the whole concern, and left his nine children about f1500 each. I refused to touch a penny of it. L. Napoleon is master of the world, England excepted ! Julius Caesar, Gustavus Adolphus, and Cromwell are the only three princes that ever equalled him in political sagacity. If we are weak or false (and the people in power are likely to be both, and seem to be one), he will probably make his own terms with the new Tzar. Of course, whatever happens, he will have the Rhine and be protector of the Rhenish Confederation-Italy, Turkey, and Poland. God grant it may end there. Could any man less of a fool than Lord J. Russell think Prussia so mad as to join our alliance, so contrary to her interests. Even if you live to my age you will not see a peace honourable and lasting. ... Every good wish to the whole of your circle from the old man.

WRITTEN IN SICKNESS.(1)
Death of the year ! wilt thou be also mine,
O Winter ! never must I catch again
The virgin breath of mountain cyclamen,
Pushing aside the wayward eglantine?

1 These verses were published in the Examiner, March 17, 1855, and afterwards in "Dry Sticks."
