General notes

Original owner Patience Tennent, Scales’s niece.

Scales in conversation with M. de Lange, 1983, recalled this scene in Nelson, supplying the approximate date and exclaiming, “Dear cows! Dear pets! Madame Kalachnikoff doesn’t like their udders – tits. I had to feed calves and all sorts of things and I loved them.”
