Dear Patmore,—That you so feel about the New Monthly Magazine is most gratifying to me.   *   *   *   *

“—— spoke kindly, yet as if some tiff with you were in the way, and he despaired of my pleasing all parties, which was the condition on which I was to have the two or three pages—afterwards extended, by special note, to three and a half, with a desire that I would take to the twenty-eighth of the month, rather than hurry or spoil it.   *   *

“I took care, under the circumstances, to
put my objections as strong as I honestly could, as I was anxious that it should not look like a partial and compromised notice.
B——’s letter satisfied C. that what I said in eulogy was tame and modest in comparison. That letter I was about to return when you wrote. It is all that was to be expected from such a mind and such a heart as his; and I feel happy in the thought that Coventry secures in him a valuable friend and adviser.   *   *   *

“You may tell Coventry that I have, for the first time, been reading Miss Barrett’s poems—one at least—and am raving about her. I thought her a pretender—God forgive me! Pray give my sincere regards to Mrs. Patmore.

“Yours ever,
“L. Blanchard.”
