CHAPTER I
PUBLIC LATTERS 1838-1840

the first Governor(1) of Ireland who had pacified, by pacific means, that abused and indignant nation; and many find an original genius in him who chooses to assault, as the weakest point or the most offensive, an over-exertion of generosity and clemency. What is yet more stimulating to curiosity, is to witness a Lord Chancellor, with a mask over his face, but with robe and wig flying full behind him, and with innumerable nods to obtain the recognition of his party, run out of Parliament, dart across the Park, spring up the staircase of Buckingham House, and give a loud slap on the face-to whom? to a groom ? to a valet ? to a lord-in-waiting ? No ; to the Queen herself; to the Queen upon the throne; exercising the duties and exalting the dignity of her station.
Sir, I confess to you I find it difficult to disengage, in high life, the idea of tory from the idea of gentleman. Can Tories look on and see this ? Can they receive with open arms, the outcast of the Whigs, the insulter-I will not say of a woman, I will not say of a young and high-born lady whom they universally call ill-protected and misled (a double claim on them), but of a Queen ! an hereditary idol ! And whence all this fury ? Because her uncle fell asleep in the midst of the man's harangue, and, on awakening, rebuffed his familiarity. Lord Brougham has yet to learn many secrets of human nature : among the rest is this : that it is not every vulgar mind that is constant to vulgarity, nor every elegant one that at all hours is disposed to repudiate her. The first part of this lesson he might have learnt from William the Fourth, the latter he may collect from his admission to the society of Lord Wellesley.
WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR.

After all this denunciation of Lord Brougham's iniquities, it may be a relief to find Landor in a more benevolent mood. A note printed under the heading
" Fine Arts" in the Examiner of August 16, 1840, gives
an account of the discovery of Dante's portrait in the Palazzo Pretorio, generally known as the Bargello, at Florence, now the National Museum. A coloured
