CHAPTER IV
PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

Liberty held up a light which Popery was glad to extinguish. She has one of her own, she tells us, quite sufficient to guide us as far as we ought to go; she hates a double one, or much of any ; it shows too plainly her pearl-powder and patches, her false teeth, and innumerable wrinkles. Bolstered up on her new pillow from Paris, she may be cajoled into bequeathing her patrimony to the eldest born of Perfidy, whose name announces his parentage : this will cost France very dear. Her honour is gone irretrievably with her plighted faith ; her allies distrust and disown her; and her armies will presently so exhaust her treasury, that, with a little of timely economy, we shall disable her, without an effort, without a movement, from inflicting the injuries she meditates against us.

January.
In the Examiner of June 15, 1850, there was a long reply by Landor to an article in the Quartery Review, but this was reprinted in " Last Fruit," p. 339, and need not be given here. His letter on "The Monument to Sir Robert Peel" (Examiner, July 27), was also reprinted in " Last Fruit." The following letter, not reprinted, was published in the Examiner of August 24, 1850- Parliament had adjourned on the 15th of the same month.

Activity of Parliament.
Parliament is now broken up, and scattered with pointers and setters " over the hills and far away." Recollecting its last deeds in its new house, I heartily wish it sport, and not only for this autumnal season, but for the whole of the remaining and the coming year. History will take heed of these matters ; we take none. Even in the reign of Charles the Second, there were conscientious and righteous men, who remonstrated against wasteful expenditure and undue claims. Shaftesbury still retained the exterior of a gentleman and man of spirit ; Hyde, in the midst of an enormous expenditure from the last drainage of an impoverisht land, had somewhat of the nobleman tagged upon the lawyer. He had not
