CHAPTER IV
PUBLIC LATTERS 1850-1852

Lord Dudley Stuart and Mr Landor.
BATH, November 5.
Lord D. Stuart, with his usual courtesy and frendliness, encloses in a letter to me this evening the copy of another which is to appear in the Examiner to-morrow. Next week perhaps, Sir, you will insert my answer, containing the reason, however insufficient, why, having mapped and registered the Satellites of Russia, I left a blank space in the center.
The Emperor is courageous and consistent : his subordinate kings and princes are more cowardly and contemptible than the most abject of their supporters. The scourge of Haynau, unless the backs of ladies have too much softened it, would be the proper instrument to employ against them : another fate, more accordant to usage in the palace of the Tzars, may attend its present occupant. So long as he lives, every high movement of the human heart throughout the Continent, every patriotic expression, every hopeful aspiration, and almost the hopeless sigh, will be supprest.
WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR.

To Lord Dudley C. Stuart.
MY DEAR LORD,
Your remark is perfectly just, that my language is too lenient towards the Emperor of Russia. If I have represented him as guiltless of perjury, and have placed him apart from his fellows, it was only in relation to the subjects born within his proper dominions. He swore nothing to them : he had no need for it. And indeed in regard to Poland he has done nothing worse than our administrators have done towards the Ionian Islands, Australia, Ceylon, and the Cape, by constitutions undermined, engagements broken, remonstrances derided, and the most fertile countries inundated and devastated by periodical shoals of outcast criminals.
If these administrators had only sown tares among the wheat, they had simply adhered to their traditional system of husbandry, but they have sown thistle and thorn, aconite and deadly nightshade. Not only no worse, but better, greatly better, the harrow of Nicholas.
