Notes
The identity of this text referred to in the evidence as 'The Isle' and not further commented on in footnotes is fairly obviously, from the context and from a previous letter to Douglas dated 29 September 1908, (p. 130 of source text), the travel article 'The Isle of Typhoeus', parts of which were later used in 'Siren Land' (1911) Douglas's book about Capri and the Sorrento area around Naples.
