CHAPTER II
PUBLIC LATTERS 1843-1847

ON August 4, 1843, in the House of Lords, Lord Brougham called attention to what he described as a libellous article in the Examiner, which charged him with insinuating that Cobden had recommended private assassination. He afterwards brought an action against the paper, employing artifices in support of his case which were stigmatised by Mr Greville as foolish and base. Landor seems to have thought that his own connection with the Examiner required him to join in the fray, and accordingly sent the following letter which was printed on August 26 :

Lord Brougham and the Exami'ner.
August 17,1843.
SIR,
The prosecution with which you are threatened by Lord Brougham might well be expected from every facette of his polygonal character. He began his literary and political life with a scanty store of many small commodities. Long after he set out, the witty and wise Lord Stowell said of him, that he wanted only a little law to fill up the vacancy. His shoulders were not overburdened by the well-padded pack he bore on them ; and he found a ready sale, where such articles find the readiest, in the town of Edinburgh. Here he entered into a confederacy (the word conspiracy may be libellous) to defend the worst atrocities of the French, and to cry down every author to whom England was dear and venerable. A better spirit now prevails in the Edinburgh
