I had intended to publish this on January 13th but was waylaid checking SSBs DoB and place of burial.

Eventually we got there (hopefully!) :D

Somebody asked in the comments on your website, who drew that illustration of Boden.

I couldn't name him but I did reply (there) that it was first published in the Westminster Papers in 1876.

Probably the same artist did all the WP sketches. Does anyone know who it was?
