Notes:

1. About six weeks earlier, Constance had made the arrangements for this auction. See Doc. No: 06474.

2. Edward Brown was not only an auctioneer, but an owner of the Hollins & Lowther Hotel. Celebrating a Royal visit sometime after the Talbot auction, its name was changed to the Prince of Wales Hotel.
