Footnotes

The year is established by the relationship between this letter and the letter to T. L. Brunton, 4 March 1874.
Brunton had argued that expression could differ on different sides of the face (see Correspondence vol. 21, letter from T. L. Brunton, 2 December 1873). He gave further examples in a now damaged section of his letter of 28 February 1874.
