Letter from Godfrey Bland to Robert Pemberton Milnes

Montmorency. - Would have enjoyed a visit from Milnes as the train journey from Paris only takes 40 minutes; fears they will not meet again; Vichy waters made him so ill he had to be carried; nearly died of 'gout of the stomach' last month and was burned by an iron in the confusion; only kept alive by his wife's care. Tom's career as a country gentleman far better than a life of worldly vanity; Milnes has been both the 'brilliant political meteor of Bolton Row' and a simple farmer at Thorne, but perhaps neither satisfied him; good reports of Milnes' son's new wife. [Section missing]. Discussion of inappropriate business speculations; Spencer Cowper has sold one of his Norfolk estates. [End missing].

Addressed to 'Honble Mrs Monckton Milnes' at Crewe Hall.

Letter from Lady Eastlake to Annabella Milnes

7 Fitzroy Square, (London).—She and her husband are grateful for Mr Milnes’s tribute to Miss Berry (i.e. his poem on her funeral).



7. Fitzroy Square
Decr. 2. 1852.

Dear Mrs Milnes

Instead of trusting to the slender chance of finding you at home on occasion of a call I venture to write & tell you how grateful Sir Chas. & I feel, in company with many others, to Mr. Milnes for his most beautiful tribute to the venerated Miss Berry.

He has spoken the language of all our hearts, & I feel convinced that each who knew Miss Berry must feel as if a sweet & sacred duty had been fulfilled for them—& fulfilled exactly as each could wish—& as none other could have done—Pray tell Mr. Milnes this—truly my heart seems lightened by his lines—

Hoping that yourself & your little daughter are well whose christening I was sorry not to be able to congratulate you on I beg to remain

Your’s truly
Eliz. Eastlake

Letter from Richard Monckton Milnes to Abraham Hayward

Bawtry. - Read Hayward's 'Radowitz' [obituary of the general, published in the Morning Chronicle, 31 Dec. 1853?]; apt description. of 'Peelite' views, combining pomposity and simplicity. His wife is much better. Coalition failing, much as expected, possibly because of [Sir James] Graham's presence; did he write 'F-----' article in the Times?
