Notes

There were two good fellows I used to know,
  --How distant it all appears!
We played together in football weather,
  And messed together for years:
Now one of them's wed
(referring to Goodhart), and the other's dead
  So long that he's hardly missed
Save by us, who messed with him years ago
  But we're all in the old School List.
- James Kenneth Stephen (a Jack the Ripper suspect)
