JW was in Valparaiso, Chile, during the Chilean conflict with Spain and would not return to London until September 1866. Before he left, he made a will in Joanna Hiffernan's favour on 31 January (#11483) and gave her power of attorney to manage his affairs (#12127). However, JW seems to have left her with little money in hand and her attempts to sell his pictures were not very successful (#11484).
Documents were numbered in another hand, possibly by Rose's clerk.
