Lyall, E. (n.d.). Derrick Vaughan : Novelist. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Chapter 1. ?Nothing fills a child?s mind like a large old mansion; better if un? or partially occupied; peopled with the spirits of deceased members of the county and Justices of the Quorum. Would I were buried in the peopled solitude of one, with my feelings at seven years old!? From Letters of Charles Lamb. To attempt a formal biography of Derrick Vaughan would be out of the question, even though he and I have been more or less thrown together since we were both in the nursery. But I have an odd sort of wish to note down roughly just a few of my recollections of him, and to show how his fortunes gradually developed, being perhaps stimulated to make the attempt by certain irritating remarks which one overhears now often enough at clubs or in drawing?rooms, or indeed wherever one goes. ?Derrick Vaughan,? say these authorities of the world of small?talk, with that delightful air of omniscience which invariably characterises them, ?why, he simply leapt into fame. He is one of the favourites of fortune. Like Byron, he woke one morning and found himself famous.?
