CHAPTER II
PUBLIC LATTERS 1843-1847

as appears from his private letters, was " outrageous " about the proceedings of the British squadron under Admiral Sir William Parker, who, on June 14, accompanied by Portuguese, French, and Spanish vessels, had entered the harbour of Setubal and summoned the insurgents under Sa da Bandiera to surrender. The Examiner of July 3, 1847, contained the following communication from Landor :

Portugal and Spain.
Frequently has it occurred to me that statesmen in this country are seldom to be found at the helm, and appear to think the best office is the purser's. The guides and guardians of the public mind occupy no seat in either House of Parliament. Our leading journal ists not only possess incomparably more ability, but exercise it gener ally with more discretion. Whenever I have happened to differ in opinion from the Exanainer, I have doubted my own judgment. It gratifies me exceedingly to find him announcing in his paper of June 26, a sentiment which I have always entertained, and publicly upheld in writing; namely, the advantage which Portugal and Spain would equally possess by the union of the two kingdoms.
Independence has a charm in the very sound of it; the first struggles of a child and the last of a man are for independence. But there is an intermediate stage in which union is the chief blessing of existence ; a state in which are sought and enjoyed mutual love, mutual succour, mutual hopes and aims. This is also the condition of nations. The true policy of Spain and Portugal is perfect union, and the true policy of England is to cement it. Europe has lost her balance long ago. England in her short-sightedness helped to overturn it, by the severance of Belgium, which in twenty years France will re-annex to her dominions; but England may recover, by the conjunction of Spain and Portugal, a fresh poising power. It is not to be wondered at that men who see indistinctly things close under their eyes, see less clearly things remote. As the greater stars are farther from sight than the less, so are greater and more
