as her proxy. . . . I envy you all your literary talk and literary friends, but still more your judicial friends of the Bar and Bench. What you state of their rank in the profession is exactly what I had supposed, either from reading the Reports, or from rumors abroad. For remainder of letter, see Story's Life and Letters, Vol. II. pp. 297-300. Again, Jan. 16, 1839:— Your sketches of the judges have been deeply interesting to me; and I look for the residue of the portraits with increased curiosity. I am truly glad to find that I had not greatly mistaken the relative rank and character of them. . . . How I should have rejoiced to be with you in your travels through England on the summer Circuit, and in your delightful visits to Lord Brougham, Lord Wharncliffe, Earl Fitzwilliam, and the Earl of Leicester! Oh, for a month at Holkham, among the books and manuscripts of Lord Coke! What a treat to gaze upon the books handled by so eminent a man, three centuries ago

u may faint! I opened your letter this morning, by the faint light of dawn, on my arrival from Holkham,—after a long night's journey. I knew, of course, the familiar hand, and hurriedly broke the spassing over the spot where King John lost his baggage, and over the Wash. . . . Arrived at Holkham, the superb seat of Lord Leicester, better known as Mr. Coke. After four days at Holkham, wherHolkham, where were Lords Spencer and Ebrington, Lord Ebrington, second Earl of Fortescue, 1783-1861. He was M. P. for North Devon in 1838. He moved, in 1831, the address of confidence in Lord Grey's administhe plate was rich and massive. I did not like the dining-room so well as Lord Leicester's, at Holkham, though it is more showy and brilliant. The drawing-rooms were quite rich. While wandering aren any thing by Rubens that pleased me, or that I could tolerate (except, perhaps, a picture at Holkham). There is one room devoted to Rubens. They were kind enough to invite me to visit them again

sh country-places, it did not strike me so much as it has some Americans. It is not so large as Wentworth, nor so comfortable and magnificent—the two combined—as Holkham, nor so splendid as Chatsworth; and it has nothing which will compare with the feudal entrance and hall of Raby Castle, nor any room equal to the drawing-room of he receipt of Felton's verses. On Chantrey's Woodcocks, ante, Vol. I. p. 378. I first gave them to Lord Brougham, and have also sent them to Lord Leicester at Holkham; to Mr. Justice Williams, now on his circuit; and to the Bishop of Durham: so that they are in the hands of the best anthologists in the kingdom. I mentioned the them know when I come to London again, and Lord Lansdowne has done the same; and to-day I had a letter from Lord Leicester, inviting me and any friend of mine to Holkham, if I should ever visit England again. But I will not detail these civilities: I will only mention one of the most gratifying,—a personal call this morning from <

of Ireland; and the next morning, while at breakfast with Lord Morpeth, encountering Lord Ebrington (now Lord Fortescue), who has just been sent to Ireland by the present ministry. Two days before, I had met the last Whig Viceroy, the Marquis of Normanby, at Lord Durham's. Let me acknowledge, in this already overgrown letter, the receipt of Felton's verses. On Chantrey's Woodcocks, ante, Vol. I. p. 378. I first gave them to Lord Brougham, and have also sent them to Lord Leicester at Holkham; to Mr. Justice Williams, now on his circuit; and to the Bishop of Durham: so that they are in the hands of the best anthologists in the kingdom. I mentioned them one day at dinner to Sir Francis Chantrey; Sir Francis Chantrey, 1781-1841. Among his works are The Sleeping Children, in Lichfield Cathedral, and statues of William Pitt, Canning, and Washington. and he prayed oyer, though he does not know a word of Greek. I have, accordingly, given him a copy. I do not know if I have ever

Last evening Howe and I rode to Felton's. My only missive By the last foreign mail. was from Milnes, who speaks warmly of Tennyson. . . . You will see the death of Sismondi and of the old Earl of Leicester, T. W. Coke. So the sage of Geneva will not be heard more, and the hospitalities of Holkham will be suspended. It is hardly probable that this generation will witness their renewal on the same splendid scale in which I saw them. Something besides fortune and a large house are required for the successful administration of these rites; and old Coke, by age, frankness of manner, and wide acquaintance with men, had become the chief of hosts. The closing of his gates will create a chasm in the Whig circle. Lord Fitzwilliam receives largely, but he does not know how to entertain; Lo
