69 Among artists Trollope was especially close to Millais and Frith. With nearly everyone in the world of publishing, journalism and authorship he enjoyed cordial relations, a fact worth remembering in a man with such a reputation for pugnacity. Increasingly drawn into the political arena during the sixties, Trollope made his own 'leap in the dark'- his candidacy at Beverley. It was a great blow when he failed to get elected. Standing for Parliament was in many ways the ultimate ambition to bury the past and guarantee his social status.

The successful period begins with Trollope's annus mirabilis, 186o, which saw his collaboration with Thackeray in the Cornhill and the popular appeal of Framley Parsonage. The sixties also begin with the well-known tribute by Nathaniel Hawthorne in a letter to the publisher James T. Fields, quoted with such pride in the Autobiography (ch. viii). In 1861 he was elected to the Garrick Club, and in 1864 to the Athenaeum. Upon Thackeray's death in 1863 he took his place as Chairman of the Garrick Club Committee, and then in 1864 came the final accolade of literary celebrity, the portrait in oils by Samuel Laurence.

It is significant that Trollope recapitulated his childhood wretchedness when he was writing in the Autobiography about his stresses of the early sixties: In my boyhood, when I would be crawling up to school with dirty boots and trousers through the muddy lanes, I was always telling myself that the misery of the hour was not the worst of it, but that the mud and solitude and poverty of the time would ensure me mud and solitude and poverty through my life. Those lads about me would go into Parliament, or become rectors and deans, or squires of parishes, or advocates thundering at the Bar.
