1901 London, March 22

"Mr H. B. Marriott Wilson," says a London paper, "is a candidate for municipal honours away at Chiswick where he lives. A novelist at the poll in the civic life of London is still rare, and there may be readers of 'Diogenes in London' and 'Lady Faint-Heart' and 'Galloping Dick' who will vote Monday for a favourite author, even more than for an administrator at the Council Board. Mr Marriott Wilson was born near Melbourne thirty-eight years ago, and was educated in New Zealand. He was at one time assistant editor of the 'Pall Mall Gazette,' and he set Mr J. M. Barrie's playwriting when he co-laboured (surely a better term than 'collaborated,' all French precedent notwithstanding) in the writing of 'Richard Savage.'" 22.3.1901
