Show Summary Details


Brewitt-Taylor's (B-T's) retirement began by the end of December 1920 when he returned to Britain and stayed with his wife in Scotland. Throughout his retirement, he made about four trips a year to visit his relatives and friends in London, Bournemouth, and Portsmouth. The family of his deceased son—Teddy and Evelyn—maintained good ties with B-T, and they began to take regular yearly trips to visit B-T and his wife in Scotland. Although Ann, B-T's wife, was discharged from the Edinburgh Asylum, she was still experiencing delusions and hallucinations. Romance of the Three Kingdoms was published by Kelly and Walsh in Shanghai during this period.
