Oh dear, I just lost a whole blog. Pushed the wrong button. It was good, too. But I have to go swimming now. Anon, anon.
Well, I'll put in my fact-checking: Ulan Bator is the capital of Mongolia. Katherine Peabody Loring was indeed the companion of Alice James. And Henry James's transcriptionist (I like amanuensis better), was Theodora, not Helen, Bosanquet.
From there I went on to a discussion of privacy, number ten on the endangered list, but it will have to wait. Anon.
Of course, if you haven't been reading my blogs you don't know what i'm talking about. Pity.
