PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

have seen grey-whiskered wolves ; but we never have seen a body of the most innocent villagers backward to pursue them in consideration of this merit.
WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR.
September 7, 1850.

There were one or two other letters in the Bxczminel~ this year, but they have either been reprinted in "Last Fruit " or are of no importance. It may be worth noting, however, that a long review of a minor poet in the Examiner of December 7 was evidently written by Landor. There are several passages in it, afterwards incorporated in his acknowledged writings.
The following letter, published in the Examiner of June 28, 1851, may not have lost all its interest :

What to with the Oystal Palace.?
SIR,
I beg permission to lay before you the suggestion of a gentleman no less distinguisht for his judgment than for his liberality.
" The last observation I heard you make was, I believe, an expression of the high interest you felt about Mr Paxton. The newspaper talk of the day is, `What is to become of the Crystal Palace ?' the production of his genius. Would not that question be well referred to the parent of the Palace? Who more competent or more fit than he would be to direct and superintend the future of his bantling during his life? The large funds created by the Exhibition are mainly due to the success of the building, and some portion could not be better applied than in a suitable testimonial to the pre-eminent contributor to the national fete. A grant by Parliament to Mr Paxton of the site of the building for life, with the unfettered disposal of the building during that period, would, I venture to suggest, be a proceeding on the part of Parliament and the Commissioners which would meet with the applause of the nation. That Mr Paxton would devise uses for the building which would meet with public approbation, I should have the fullest confidence. I take the liberty of submitting this notion to your judgment."
