CHAPTER IV
PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

LANDOR'S first letter in the Examiller of 1850 was reprinted in " Last Fruit," p. 350, under the title, " What we have and what we owe." I n this he wrote:-- Even in our own country marry millions have been idly squandered in ships unfit for sailing and unnecessary for fighting. .. . We may soon want the ships that are no more ; for ere six months are over, we shall have to support the Turkish Empire. But there are masses now inert which our machinery may raise, combine, and make combustible." His next letter, which follows, was printed in the Examiner of February 16:

The Warfare of Economy.
We never had so glorious an opportunity of engaging in a successful war as we have at present. What war? Against whom? A war of economy ; against the world. The rashness and insolence of the French have several times attempted to provoke us into one. Conscious of our strength, we looked down with calm contempt on the bis victos Phryges. The only war it becomes us to wage against her is the truly Social war ; the war of principles, the war of integrity, the war of economy. Instead of exceeding our revenue, as the French have done and will continue to do, we may without difficulty save eight or nine millions yearly. There is no necessity for much more than a colonial force in the West Indies or in Canada. They are able and willing to defray all the expenses of a just Government. If the Crown lands, as they are improperly called, were sold, thousands
