Notes
Editors’ Note 1 to the heading “Sketches” on p. 137 reads: “RLS is commenting on Henley’s ‘Hospital Outlines’ but since these were accepted by the ""Cornhill"" in April and RLS did not go to Swanston until May, he is presumably commenting on the proof.” Editors’ Note 2 to the end of the text given for Letter 390 reads: “The MS was pasted down and framed by Lord Guthrie, and the rest cannot be read.”
