CHAPTER II
PUBLIC LATTERS 1843-1847

intelligent of that country, which contains three-fourths of all the intelligence of the world, few, I repeat, are aware how paramount and preponderating is the influence of Russia on surrounding states : few know or suspect the vast resources of the Emperor; few are aware that Russia, like ancient Rome, is undeviating in aggression. Systems do not change in that country as in England ; one Minister does not raise up his power on the broken plans and thwarted measures of another, reckless if, while his faction is upholden, his country falls. The arm of Marlborough, outstretched for the deliverance of Europe, was paralysed at Utrecht; and greatly more than Wellington did was undone at Vienna. But in Russia the fiercest barbarism is guided by the most sagacious policy. The sword of Suwarof shivered the throne of Sobieski, smote the crescent where it rose in the East, and was only checked by the glaciers of the Alps. For nearly two centuries no reverses have diminished the power, abated the influence, counteracted the policy, or shortened the strides of Russia. At present, with true and deep wisdom, she abstains from injuring and irritating us : but she will not let us do what is right unless we let her do what is wrong.
Although France, not lying on the confines of Greece, has certainly less pretension than the adjacent states to interfere in her concerns, it is a wise, because it is a conciliatory policy, to invite her to assist in holding up one side of the pall at this miraculous resuscitation from the dead. At the same time, however, Belgium and Holland and Prussia should be witnesses and trustees.
WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR.

The letter which Landor wrote to Daniel O'Connell in 1838 has already been quoted. In May 1844 O'Connell, having been tried and found guilty on a charge of conspiracy, was sentenced by the Court of Queen's Bench at Dublin to a year's imprisonment and a fine of f2000. Three months later the House of Lords reversed the judgment of the Court, and O'Connell was set at liberty ; but in the meantime the Examiner of June 22 had published a memorial
