Footnotes

The year is conjectured from the printed stationery, with the address in the centre (CD used this type of notepaper from January 1872 until November 1874), and from the possibility that CD was ordering [S. Butler] 1872a (see n. 2, below).
Nicholas Trübner was a publisher and bookseller in London. CD may have been in the process of ordering Samuel Butler’s Erewhon ([S. Butler] 1872a); see letter from Samuel Butler, 30 May 1872.
