1.  Rodolph Nicholson Wornum
Ralph Nicholson Wornum (1812-1877), history painter [more]. This relates to JW's recent quarrel with Francis Seymour Haden (1818-1910), surgeon and etcher, JW's brother-in-law [more], which led to his alleged assault on Haden in a Paris café. As a result, Haden campaigned for JW to be excluded from the Club (see JW's account of Haden's allegations in his letter to L. Huth, #02240). See also #12978.
