    Notes 
    • Mr. John Lawrence Lambe, poet and writer, who died last week, was the son of John Lambe, a Manchester merchant, and nephew of the late Sir William Agnew, M.P. He was born in 1863, and was educated at Rugby and Trinity Hall, Cambridge. In 1890 he brought out Camella, or The Plague of Naples, a tragedy in five acts, which was privately circulated, and in 1911 a volume entitled "Experiments in Play-Writing in Verse and Prose." In an introduction he appealed for a revival of the poetic drama; the six plays in the book were evidently the work of a well-read man of good taste. Beethoven Deaf, An English Gentleman (George Washington), and Rousseau's Disciple (Robespierre) are perhaps the most noteworthy. These three plays were produced in America. In 1915 he published a volume of sonnets to his old friend, the late Theodore Watts-Dunton. Mr. Lambe was also the author of a book of travel, and a novel of Bulgarian politics and romance, "By Command of the Prince." He married, in 1892, Mina, daughter of the late Count de Lolme; she survives him with five children. [The Times, 01 Jun 1926]
