CHAPTER V
PUBLIC LATTERS 1853-1855

Verily great is the God Nicholas, and worthy to be feared and praised ; worthy to be held in everlasting remembrance ; worthy to be worshipped in high places ; yea, in the highest accessible to the feet of Britons.
WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR.

The following letter was addressed by Landor to Sir G. Hamilton Seymour, the late British Ambassador at St Petersburg, who at the Lord Mayor's banquet a few days before had explained the devious ways of Russian diplomacy. Sir Hamilton Seymour had been minister at Florence in the thirties. Landor's letter was printed in the Examiner, April 29, 1854:

The friendship you always showed towards me while you were minister at Florence, and ever since, induces me to congratulate you, not only on your safe return, but on the acclamations of your country for your manly conduct. Diplomacy, even English Diplomacy, again is held in honor ; you bring her back sans tache et sans reproche.

You came too late to hear, -" Bail, fellow l well wet!

The French ambassador is a partaker of your glory, in leaving at the same time as you the most perfidious of Courts, and a palace whose latest trophy is your stolen wardrobe.

Drouyn de Lhuys, the most intelligent and circumspect of statesmen, will take care that only such shall represent his Majesty. You know enough of me to know that I am not a flatterer.
