PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR.

Decencber 18, 1848.
The Emperor Ferdinand, on Dec. 2, 1848, abdicated in favour of his nephew Francis Joseph, now reigning. The new Emperor, a youth of nineteen, signed a proclamation in which Kossuth and the Committee of Hungarian Defence were denounced as outlaws. Early in January 1849 the surrender of Pesth to the Imperial Troops compelled Kossuth with his Magyars to retire to Debreczin, but he carried with him the Iron Crown of Hungary. The Hungarians sought the mediation of Great Britain, and were told by Lord Palmerston that the British Government had no knowledge of Hungary save as part of the Austrian Empire. After suffering further reverses, the Hungarians were again victorious, and on April 19th, 1849, the Austrians were compelled to evacuate Pesth. Five days earlier, Hungary was declared a free State with Kossuth as supreme governor. To him Landor addressed the following letter, which was published in the Examiner of May 19, 1849:

To General Kossuth
General ! There are few who have the privilege to address you, but I am of the number ; for before you were born I was an advocate, however feeble, of that sacred cause which you are now
the foremost in defending. Imminent was the peril of fine and imprisonment, and certain the loss of friends and fortune : I disregarded and defied the worst. Do not trample on this paper for being written by an Englishman. We are not all of us jugglers and dupes, though we are most of us the legitimate children of those
