Footnotes

  • Edward Strangman, a partner of Leonard Smithers, was a friend of both Douglas and Wilde, as well as of Douglas' s brother, Percy, Robert Ross and William Rothenstein. Wilde described Strangman as a "very gentle, rather shy chap: Irish by race, Oxford by culture". Smithers may have thought otherwise as he later attributed his bankruptcy to Percy Douglas and Strangman.
