|Note:|| 'Amongst these, there was a delightful man, a Captain Lewin, who was home on leave from India, and who was utilizing his holiday by studying painting, for which he had a natural talent. He was the nephew of the well-known Mrs Grote, and brother of William Terriss, the actor.
We had a great deal in common – we both wrote poetry, loved literature and Art – and as we lived within a stone’s-throw of one another we found ourselves en route for the School, or away from it, much about the same time. I became great friends with his family. Mrs Lewin, his mother, was a beautiful old lady, and her good looks were inherited by her younger son, William, who, when he became an actor, took the name of Terriss.' (Jopling, 1925) |
