Completely silly idea

I shall name all the minor characters in this novel after characters in Galsworthy. Not after Soames himself, of course. And "Jolyon" is too silly a name to be used casually. But Young Nicholas is a useful name. As is Jesse Hayman (brother Giles Hayman, alas, not a useful name). Imogen! Imogen married some perfectly boring sports-mad man named Jack Cardigan. Montague Dartie! Chankery! Septimus Small! Mervyn Waterbuck, QC!

I have no icons of the Eric Porter Soames. I must remedy this deficiency.
