CHAPTER VI
PRIVATE LETTERS 1858-1863

... I have not left my room these four months. My sons Walter and Charles are very attentive to me.
My friend Mrs West (1) of Ruthin Castle has sent me her " Garibaldi's March" which she composed. Alas ! I shall never hear it, which I might hope were I again in Great Bedford Street. I have given a parcel of poetry to my friend, Arthur Walker, to do with it what he pleases.(2) I had no time or inclination to arrange it. The books I have lately been reading are the works of Washington Irving. None of our present writers write such pure English ; he reminds me of

1 Mrs West, wife of the late Frederick West, grandson of the 2nd Earl de la Warr, died in 1886. Her grand-daughter is Princess Henry of Pless. Among the manuscript verses which I found in Landor's desk were some lines addressed to "the Lady of Ruthin Castle," and referring to her musical composition "Garibaldi's March." As they have never been published, I append them here. They are among the very last he wrote :
" Stiffly I rise from this arm-chair, Even to greet the wise and fair, Who daily, one or other, come
To cheer me in my dressing-room.
" I have but thanks to pay for song,
And March the brave will march to long.
Rejoice : Caprara has receiv'd
Him o'er whose wound pale Europe griev'd.
Again his spirit breathes in all
That host which Death could ne'er appall,
Until he stood above the head
Of one they deem'd already dead.

" The laurel planted for your crown,
Altho' no moderate breeze shake down,
You must vefesken day by day,
Or leaves of it will drop away."
2"Heroic Idyls," by Walter Savage Landor. London: T. Newby, 1863.

PRIVATE LETTERS 1858-1863

Addison, but has more genius and a richer invention. Perhaps on the whole he is more like Goldsmith. I have not time enough before me to learn our new English.
Who knows but at this very hour I am detaining you from attending to Rosina's lessons. I must not hazard it any longer. This is probably the last tidings you will receive from
Your affectionate old friend,
WALTER LANDOR.

This is the last letter in Lady Graves-Sawle's album. Nor is there anything here to add to the story told by Mr Forster and Mr Colvin. Walter Savage Landor died in Florence on September 17,
1864.
