Excerpt from Lanoe Falconer (Author of "Mademoiselle Ixe")
All her sister's hitherto unopened papers at my disposal, has constantly helped me by supply ing information and recollections which no one else could have furnished. I am also indebted to Mrs. Lee-white, Mrs. Walker, Lady Ports mouth, and Lady Rosamond Christie for the same kind of help. I owe thanks to Lady Portsmouth, Mrs. Birch, and Mr. Gerald Vernon Wallop for help with illustrations, to Mr. Henry Houndle for looking over the memoir on behalf of Miss Hawker's family, to all those who have sanctioned the inclusion of letters, and, not least, to Mr. Bertram Christian of Messrs. Nisbet and Co. For reading proofs and giving advice on various points. A small portion of the material has already appeared in the Comhz'll Magazine, for which I desire to make due acknowledgment.
