Thank you for your article on this story. I came across the story in the Anglo American while researching my family genealogy - my ancestor was a musician living in Somers Town, probably very poor, and he died of tuberculosis 8 years prior to the story being written. So the story pulled my heart strings a bit, particularly with the depiction of the sad scene in the cellar of Somers town, one of the poorest areas in London at the time.
