In your Court Records p. 93 (13 April 1603) you may care to refer to Arber II. 38. There was a London edition of the Lepanto published by Stafford and Hooke, 1603. A copy was in Bindley IV. 410—Heber IV. 1189—Britwell (private cat. of Eng. poetry II. 220, but not, apparently sold at Sotheby’s, see Checklist). See Arber III. 232.

3 Bolton St. - Thanks Lord Houghton for his note about the book [The American]; agrees that 'the Bellegardes are rather "belated". They would have been more probable under the old régime; but I suppose a novelist has always to force matters a little. But even to modified Bellegardes an American savoring much of the soil would never have been acceptable. The French don't at all like the Americans (according to my observation) - none, that is, save M. [Charles Frederick] Worth; & he, I believe, is English!. But the French, after all, don't like any one but the French!...'
Hopes that Houghton has completely recovered. Will leave town in a few days, but will visit Houghton before he does so. 'Yours faithfully & gratefully, H. James jr.'
19 Dean's Yard, Westmr. S.W. - Describes a 'disorderly scene' in [Westminster] School on Shrove Tuesday, 'the Cook having failed for 3 years to throw the pancake over the bar'; has written a poem about the ensuing fracas, a revised version of which he is sending Whewell.
