Excerpt from A Painter of Dreams, and Other Biographical Studies

Certain material for A Dupe of Destiny has been supplied by a grandson of Madame Patterson Bonaparte; by a friend of her family (at the house of whose grandfather Jerome Bonaparte met his future bride, then Eliza beth Patterson, and whose relations were inti mately acquainted with her in later years, when a repudiated wife) from Dr Richard Caton of Liverpool, collateral descendant of Mrs Robert Patterson, nee Caton; and by Mrs Murray, nee Patterson, whose grandfather was a brother of William Patterson, the father of the above-mentioned Elizabeth, Madame Patterson Bonaparte.

Much of the information in A Favourite of Destiny was given me by the aforesaid Dr Richard Caton, and by Mrs Brown Westhead, of Lea Castle, Worcestershire, collateral descendants of Richard Caton of Baltimore.

The correspondence in A Painter of Realities was given me by my cousin, Philip Spencer Stan h0pe, great-nephew of Charles Spencer Stanhope, the early patron of Herring.

The material for A Painter of Dreams, the life of my uncle Roddam Spencer Stanhope, has been furnished from papers in the possession of various members of my family.

It will therefore be seen that, in each instance, the source whence my information has been de rived is unimpeachable, although at the same time one which was probably inaccessible to the general public.
