page 229 note 1 It is really high time that the American sermo compester (with its congeners Pentagonian and Unescovite) was recognized as an independent language, belonging to what may be called the ‘Britonce’ family (Britonce:English::Romance:Latin).

page 230 note 1 Discussing the revised chapters of Persuasion, Miss Mary Lascelles suggested that one reason for regarding the episode of Mrs. Smith as an ‘improvisation’ by the author is that ‘it is not neatly joined on at the end to the rest of the narrative’ (Jane Austen and her Art [Oxford, 1939], p. 194). This argument seems to me exactly applicable to the Doloneia; it follows well on Book ix, but has little (if any) influence on Books xi–xxiv. For Pisistratus and the Panathenaea, I may perhaps be allowed to refer to my articles in T.A.P.A. lxxxvi (1955), 121 (not mentioned by Whitman) and J.H.S. lxxviii (1958), 2342.
