Smith, Catharine Amelia (Pybus) I Mrs. Sidney Smith I, d. 1852, wife of the Rev. Sydney Smith. From the time of her marriage in 1800, was her husband's helpmate, counsellor, and admirer, ambitious for his advancement. Saved from destruction some of the lectures that he would have flung into the fire; often, at his request, looked over his MSS, to "put in dots to the i's and strokes to the t's." After his death in 1845, her one desire was to leave to the world a "memorial of my noble-hearted husband"; for that purpose collected, transcribed, and arranged his letters and papers, but felt herself incapable of writing a memoir or editing the letters. "Her pride in her husband was only equalled by her humility about herself," wrote Sarah Austin; "and nothing could persuade her that she was competent to do what she so intensely longed to see done" (Memoir of the Reverend Sydney Smith, I, 113, et passim; II, xx–xxi). The Memoir, writter by her daughter, Lady Holland, together with a selection of Smith's letters edited by Mrs. Austin, was published in 1855. James White's H.W. article "Sydney Smith" was based on the book.

Sommerville. "The Great British Gum Secret" [V, 202–03. May 15, 1852] relates the discovery of the process of making adhesive paste and the subsequent commercial manufacture of such paste. The introductory paragraphs of the article, referring to the adhesive on postage stamps and connecting the article with "The Queen's Head" (Feb. 21, 1852), are evidently an editorial addition. Payment for the contribution recorded as "Advanced by W.H.W."

Sorrell. The contributor pictures himself in his book-lined library sitting down to compose an article for H.W. – an intention that is thwarted by his love of idleness (Thomas Idle of "The Lazy Tour of Two Idle Apprentices" is "a fellow completely after my own heart") and by the stream-of-consciousness working of his "discursive mind." An example of the latter process is his recollection of a sunset viewed from the Drachenfels, of Weimar, and of "the mighty" Goethe, called forth by his lighting a German tobacco pipe. The recollection leads to his taking from the shelf Eckermann's Conversations with Goethe – "an especially delightful book." Among other matters referred to in the article are Punch and Judy shows and their French and Italian counterparts.

Speight, Thomas Wilkinson I T. Speight, Spelght I, 1830–1915, novelist. Born in Liverpool; educated at a foundation-school in north of England. For many years held a position with a railway company (his H.W. article "Up and down the Line" [XV, 601–07. June 27, 1857] records in detail the responsibilities and duties of railway executives and employees). Mentioned in Allibone as contributor to H.W., A.Y.R., and Belgravia. Some of his shorter novels appeared in the Gentleman's Annual. From 1867 to 1912, published some fifty works of fiction, long and short, e.g., Under Lock and Key (which he assured readers he had written before reading The Moonstone), A Secret of the Sea, The Mysteries of Heron Dyke and A Bootless Crime. Reviewers found his mystery novels "fascinating," "thrilling," "sensational."
