Also clippings, printed matter, a typed prose paragraph, a typed poem entittled "On a Picture by Paul Veronese" (1896) signed illegibly, pencil and pen drawings, a watercolor, holograph and printed recipes, a commonplace book, and a ledger book. The commonplace book has a holograph title reading "Charlotte Elizabeth Hemlett from J. H.

The ledger contains printed matter at the beginning and end, and is entitlted "The memorandum-book, for the year of our Lord 1841...London: Printed by assignment of John Poole, for Suttaby and Co. Stationeer's Court...." Appointments and notes are inscribed throughout the "Diary" section of the ledger, chiefly in French with a few notes in English.
