Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Laman Blanchard
Of all the brilliant company in the midst of whom Laman Blanchard was a beloved and honoured presence, only Mr. Robert Browning, Mr. R. H. Horne, Mr. John Forster, Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Hall, and George Cruikshank are now alive. The rest lie in their graves. Lord Lytton, Charles Dickens, William Godwin, Douglas Jerrold, Leigh Hunt, Count d'Orsay, Emerson Tennent, Justice Talfourd, Procter, Keeley, Macready, Frank Stone, Thackeray, Albany Fonblanque, W. Jerdan, and N. A. Vigors, have gone to their rest; each leaving some mark on their time, and some assurances of a fame that will travel down the centuries.
