  1. Looks like your novel will treat in fiction both someone I’m very interested in treating in my own (academic) work, and a milieu that is fascinating in other ways …

    • Yes. I’m guessing you’ve had a look at the notes on Bainbrigge in D’Arch Smith? I once briefly corresponded with someone who was scouring the earth in search of a series of (possibly saucy) clerihews based on the lives of the Roman Emperors, allegedly authored by C.K. Scott Moncrieff. Jean Findlay would be the person to ask!

  2. Yes- and I am looking for them still. I’m theorizing they either appeared in a contemporary Literary Journal or circulated in manuscript. Or possibly they are in an old publication in Scotland at the university he attended.
