Landor

NCR diary 21.5.1832 with Landor "We went first to Mrs A: and had the good luck to find her going to the gallery and we accompanied her - L: was exceedingly delighted with their pictures - some of which he declared with his usual exaggeration to be finer than Raphael etc however his judgement seemed in substance to be that of Mrs A: and I daresay they were pleased with each other"
25.5.1832 "with Mrs Aders - An interesting rather than comfortable chat about Landor who is high in favor on account of his admiration of their pictures - and Mrs A: says his judgement is quite theirs on almost every point. It seems they wanted to sell their pictures and she wished me to assist them in this which I have not the means of doing"
