CHAPTER IV
PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

enraged apparently at the escape of Bern and Guyon, vented his fury on those who had treated them with kindness and courtesy. He ordered the lady of the house to be flogged, and she was afterwards dragged barefoot by his soldiers as far as Hatseg. Her unfortunate husband, maddened by this outrage, blew out his brains with a pistol."
A different version may be found in the reminiscences of the late Sir William Frazer, who held that General Haynau was not personally to blame for the affair. However this may be, when General Haynau came to this country on a visit in 1850 he found himself an object of public execration. On September 4 of that year the " Austrian butcher," as he was styled, was assaulted by a mob, at Barclay's brewery, and was only rescued with great difficulty by the police. This unfortunate incident naturally evoked a serious protest from the Austrian Government, as well as an excited correspondence in the English press, in which Landor joined. Beside verses on the subject in " Last Fruit," p. 367, he wrote the following letter to the Examiner, published by that paper on September 14, 1850 :

Receplion of Haynau.
SIR,
Accounts have reached every part of England announcing the reception of Haynau. Whatever is new is generally more acceptable in this country than in any other ; and murderers have lately been the principal objects of solicitude and compassion. Personal wrongs, urgent necessity, and neglected education, the fault of parents or of Government, have impelled the greater part of these wretches to the commission of their crime. Yet the feeling is false and morbid which induces those of a better nature to visit them in their prisons, and to comfort them under the sentence of the laws. What excuse then is there for patronizing the deliberate murderer of brave soldiers, not met in the field of battle, not taken with arms
