These are full of affection; he likens his own case to that of King Lear, and seems to have considered Mrs. Linton as his Cordelia. "Nothing on earth is so precious to me as your affection." In many he bewails his enforced exile, and pathetically refers to the loss of his home, his pictures, and specially his books; he mentions the Brownings, his Dry Sticks,' &c., and says: "I am in rags, I have not laid out 40 shillings on clothing in 4 years.' There are eighteen long letters of Swinburne's.
