CHAPTER III
PUBLIC LATTERS 1848-1849

Christ denounced it, then perhaps it might have been explained away ; but even bishops and cardinals and fathers (much higher authorities in Holy Church) have set their faces against it. Pope Julius and Pope Alexander, whom many, even of the hierarchy, accused of cruelty and immorality, and what is the worst of cruelties and immoralities, an indifference to bloodshed and an indulgence in it, never instigated to them so extensively as Pio Nono. The worse of the two, whichever it may be, would have discountenanced, forbidden, and anathematised such atrocities, such meanness and ingratitude, such fraudulence and ferocity, as the French are now committing in his name. The human race cries out against them : it is only the race undescribed by Buffon, but described by Voltaire, which dips its whiskers into them and in gurgitates them greedily and gaily. If this irreclaimable race had belonged to the genus laonzo, a physiologist might designate it as the nation that never blushes.
WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR.
July 2, 1849.

Events in Italy had not wholly distracted Landor's attention from the struggle in Hungary. Writing to Lord Dudley Stuart early in the year, he had " suggested the propriety and practicability of raising a subsidy, however small, in aid of the Hungarians." In July he sent to the Examiner the following letter (published July 21) with f5 far the Hungarian Hussars. A couple of days later, it may be noted, a public meeting was held in London "for the purpose of expressing sympathy with that noble, maligned, and betrayed people, the Hungarian nation."

Subscription for the Hungarians.
