Sir Buckstone Abbott: The title of his book should be My Sporting Memories.

W. Firby-Smith: His first initial W. is signed on the notice at the close of Chapter 18 of MK09.

Montague Grayson: Note that in BC24b he is merely the “large, mauve-faced individual in golfing costume”; neither his name nor his occupation as a novelist are mentioned in the Grand magazine serial.

Additions to Indexes:


11IA, “In Alcala”: It’s too late to change the basic letter-and-number code, but Gus Caywood has shared has shared a scan of the story’s initial appearance in the People’s Magazine (US), November 1909. So 11IAa will have to be the code for this 1909 story. Gus notes that he thinks “the 1909 date is significant, since the story is both autobiographical (drawn from PGW’s earliest days at the Hotel Earle), and soppier than anything else he was writing.”
