Here is a footnate to the notice below:
1. The date for the funeral is wrong. It is March 11.
2. On background: :In 1914 Pound married the artist Dorothy Shakespear,
"surely the most charming woman in London," as Pound described her to his
mother. After a vacation in Egypt, Dorothy conceived in 1926 a child, Omar.
