1915 November Footnotes

[1] The Small House at Allington is the fifth novel in Anthony Trollope’s series known as the “Chronicles of Barsetshire”.

[2] Mudros comprised a small Greek port on the Mediterranean island of Lemno. It gained wartime significance with the determination of the Allies – chiefly the British and largely through the enthusiasm of Winston Churchill – in the early part of 1915 to attempt to seize control of the Dardanelles Straits, some 50km away.

[3] A Girl of the Limberlost, a novel by American writer and naturalist Gene Stratton-Porter, was published in August 1909. It is considered a classic of Indiana literature. It is the sequel to her earlier novel Freckles. The story takes place in Indiana, in and around the Limberlost Swamp.
