CHAPTER VI
PRIVATE LETTERS 1858-1861

I intend to be buried. Such was my promise in my early days to one who could not make the same, but whose last words pronounced my name with faithful and fond remembrance. So did my sister Elizabeth, as Kitty tells me. I never have forgotten those who loved me, even a little. ... I have received a very kind note from my old friend Lord Normanby 1 who is paralytic. Lady Normanby wrote it. . .

To Mrs Graves-.Sazwle.
FLORENCE, VIA NUNCIATINA 267, December 23 [1859].
DEAR RosE,
A happy Christmas to you and all dear to you. Included in this wish is a happy new

1 Can this have been a reply to the letter which Landor is said to have written to Lord Normanby, and which, according to Lord Houghton, ended as follows ? :
" We are both of us old men, my lord, and are verging on decrepitude and imbecility, else my note might be more energetic. I am not observant of distinctions. You by the favour of a Minister are Marquis of Normanby, I by the grace of God am
WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR."

The story is that Landor on his arrival at Florence was aggrieved by the Marquis's cool reception of him, and thus expressed his resentment of the affront. Yet here we have him writing kindly enough of his old friend to whom, when Earl of Mulgrave, he had dedicated "Pericles and Aspasia." The accuracy of the anecdote and the supposed date of the angry letter are not easily reconciled with the fact that Landor did not leave England till July 1858, and Lord Normanby had ceased to be Minister in February, having been recalled by Lord YIalmesbury.
