Catalogue Note

"Coote" or Lady Dorothy Heber Percy was an early friend of Evelyn Waugh and, according to Waugh's wife Laura, "the nicest of all your friends". Waugh was a frequent visitor to the family home, and would often write while there.  He dedicated Black Mischief to Lady Dorothy and her sister Mary in 1932.  She serves as the inspiration for Lady Cordelia Flyte in Brideshead Revisited.
