Notes:

1.  [c. 21 November 1878]
These documents precede the case of Whistler v. Ruskin, which was heard at the Queen's Bench of the High Court on 25-26 November 1878. For a similar list, dated 21 November, see #13290.

2.  James Anderson Rose
James Anderson Rose (1819-1890), solicitor [more]. These writs may have been served by Rose, or they may be copies kept by him, since they passed with his papers to the Library of Congress. Several writs are duplicated.

3.  '32'
Circled, in top right corner of first page. Probably added by J. A Rose.

The people summoned to court included Albert Joseph Moore (1841-1893), painter [more]; Richard Rivington Holmes (1835-1911), Librarian at Windsor Castle and Sergeant at Arms to Queen Victoria [more]; George William Reid (1819-1887), Curator, British Museum Print Room [more]; Charles Samuel Keene (1823-1891), etcher, cartoonist and illustrator [more]; Jacques ('James') Joseph Tissot (1836-1902), painter and etcher [more]; Matthew Robinson Elden (1839-1885), artist [more]; Charles Augustus ('Owl') Howell (1840? - d.1890), entrepreneur [more]; Algernon Graves (1845-1922), of H.
