CHAPTER VI
PRIVATE LETTERS 1858-1863

every week, and a few friends in England have not forgotten me. Do not you.
Believe me ever, dear Rose,
Yr. affte. old friend,
W. S. L.

To Mrs Graves-Sawle.
[FLORENCE] January 19, 1863.
DEAR ROSE,
You see just above that I have not forgotten the nineteenth of January. May you have many such birthdays, all as happy as any of the past. In ten days more I shall enter my eighty-ninth year, and I have already lost, what people generally lose earlier, much of my eye-sight and hearing, and my two front teeth. Do not laugh at this, it is quite as grievous as the other! ... Few of the friends I knew here formerly are here now. Kirkup, the Trollopes, Count Coterell come to me occasionally and some from abroad. Seymour,(1) as you know, is now Ambassador in Germany. He came frequently to see me, and his father, Lord George with him once or twice. He was about my age and died lately. It is high time for me to go too. Nothing I wish more. Countess Baldelli often comes to relieve my solitude and brings her children.

1 Sir George Hamilton Seymour had retired from the diplomatic service in 1858, and his visit to Landor may have been paid some time ago.
