T.D. Phillips'? Di Felice and Wright have 'Jarvis, Samuel'; Yanofsky has 'J. Jarvis'? Di Felice and Wright have 'Casey, George Elliott'; Cohen has 'George Casey'; Yanofsky has 'J. Casey', and the Globe of 28 Feb. 1881 has 'G.W. Casey'? Di Felice and Wright have 'Taylor, G.H.'; Yanofsky has 'Taylor, H.'?
