Descripción

Wigwam Club flier on one side of piece of paper, roughly 20 x 13 cm. Very good. Headed with humourous illustration of crowded wigwam on which is written 'No admission except on business'. Jealous, as Honorary Secretary, states that the club, with William Hughes in the Chair, will meet at Anderton's, in Fleet Street, on 19 July 1892. 'In Memoriam' card on both sides of card roughly 9 x 11 cm. Good, though a little grubby, with traces of grey paper mount at foot of reverse. Small sepia photograph of Jealous, roughly 3 x 2 cm, in top left-hand corner of recto. Gives Jealous's birth and death dates, and the date of his interment, with the Wigwam Club details neatly added in a contemporary hand at foot. On the reverse a twenty-four line poem by 'P.', entitled 'In Memoriam', and dated 'Hampstead, Sept. 21st, 1896.' Second stanza reads: 'It seems but yesterday we saw his face, | And heard the voice with its sonorous ring, | And wondered, as the week crept on apace, | What the Express would bring.' Fourth stanza: 'How he loved Hampstead and its glorious Heath! | Knew all its proud traditions of the past; | Held reverence for its "Worthies" - until death | Placed him with them at last.'.
