      Note/s:
      • Barbara Wall, in her Bibliography of Catherine Helen Spence (http://www.slsa.sa.gov.au/spence/main_bib.htm) notes that 'according to Spence's Autobiography p. 25, Uphill Work (a novel) was published by the Telegraph in its weekend paper the Weekly Mail. An advertisement, announcing that a 'New Tale by Miss Spence' would be published serially in the Weekly Mail, appeared in the Telegraph on 15 February 1864. Unfortunately the Weekly Mail has not survived. Uphill Work was published in book form in 1865 under the title Mr Hogarth's Will.'
