The Post Office London Directory, 1859, lists the firm of Tilleard, Son, Godden & Holme, solicitors, at the contributor’s listed address, with cross-reference from James Wilson Holme to the firm name. Holme had only recently become a partner in the firm; the 1858 directory does not include his name in the firm name.

Not identified. London directories, 1856-1858, list no Holme at the above address, nor do they list a T. M. HoIme at another address. The address indicates that the contributor was probably in the legal profession; he may be the solicitor Iames Wilson Holme. The initials recorded in the Office Book seem clearly to read ''T.M.''; they may, however, be intended for "J.W." In Bentley's Miscellany, 1838, appeared a poem by M. Torre Holme. The Office Book occasionally records a contributor's initials in reverse order.

Divine. B.A. Cambridge, 1823; M.A. 1824 (according to Crockford; 1828, according to J. A. Venn, Alumni Cantabrigienses: A Biographical List, 1940-1954); vicar of Meopham, Kent, 1854-1875. The contributor identifies himself as incumbent of the parish of Meopham. His article gives, from Ashmole's diary and from a document in his possession, information concerning the Tradescants.

Payment of £1.1.0 for the 1-column item was twice the standard rate.
