CHAPTER I
PUBLIC LATTERS 1838-1840

influence is perpetually running on. The smallest states in Italy and Germany contain some imperial agent. If there are two presses in any town, one is worked by Russia. Professors are invited from every foreign university : even they who decline the offer are proud of the distinction, which ribbands and rings and snuff-boxes materially enhance : one unbroken line of conduct, ministry after ministry, age after age, is pursued invariably; and there is always a Philip of Macedon on the throne of Muscovy. Gold moulds intellect, intellect moulds policy, and policy holds back or precipitates the march of war. Incorruptible as we boast to be, is there any man who believes that our press, our parliament, our privy council, will remain for ever, or for long, uncontaminated by Russia? We consider the Germans honest ; and they are so ; certainly no less than ourselves : yet in every city of Germany, royal, imperial, or free, but in the free particularly, the principal trade is ylrask-ntahind for Russia. She stands already at our door in a flimsy domino, which it behoves us to strip off before she cross the threshold. I do not say Delenda est Carthago ; I do say Servana'a est Caucasia.
WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR.

Lord Brougham's "Sketches of Statesmen in the Reign of George III.," First Series (London, I839), provoked a series of criticisms from Landor. One of them, originally published in the Examiner, May 19, 1839, was reprinted in the 1846 and 1876 editions of his works;' but the others have till now been overlooked. They illustrate, however, in an interesting way, Landor's critical methods ; and are not without instruction for careless writers. The first letter here given, appeared in the Examiner, June 16, 1839.
