CHAPTER V
PUBLIC LATTERS 1853-1855

we know too, but try to dissemble in the multiplicity of our fears, that Russia, with less than a third of her existing population, withstood the most warlike of nations, led against her by the greatest captain in the world. She increased her territory year after year with forces not amounting to a fifth of what she can wield at present. Can the Sultan then, or can we, suppose that the Tzar will desist from his aggressions, until all the Powers, excepting the two subservient, who lie like lapdogs on the skirts of his overcoat, hold him fast, shake him well, and tie him down with cordage stronger than the withy bands of dry diplomacy ? Sometimes it is better and safer to do too much than to do too little. A wild beast is never to be wounded and run away from. The clay and the brass are hastening to disseverance and dissolution. Priest and ruler who run under the idol, and attempt to prop it up again, are crushed.
WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR.
Dec. 10, 1853

The day before this letter appeared, the Times announced that Lord Palmerston had resigned his post as Home Secretary, on account of his opposition to the Government's contemplated Reform Bill. In the end, he was induced to remain in the Cabinet ; but the incident serves to illustrate the opening paragraphs of the following letter, printed in the Examiner
of January 28, 1854 :

The Paramount Question.
Every man in Parliament thinks himself wiser than every man out : and there is an appearance of reason on his side : for, if he were not so, why should he have been sent to the place where he sits? However, the fact is not quite so certain as it seems to be in that quarter. Firmly do I believe that more than one of our newspapers contains a daily article worth all that is spoken in both Houses in seven years. Whether what I am now writing will be generally thought of such a value I am unable to ascertain : such as it is, I owe it, and offer it freely, to my country.
