Editor’s Note
1 During June and July CD rented 4 Ailsa Park Villas, Isleworth Road, Twickenham—a pleasant Regency villa—and entertained there a stream of visitors including Forster, Burnett, Austin, Talfourd, Ainsworth, Mitton, Beard, Bentley and Hullah. For a photograph of the house see J. W. T. Ley, The Dickens Circle, 1918, facing p. 64.
