      Buckland was apparently acquainted with Dickens. Occasional entries in his diary record his taking an article "to Dickens" (Bompas, Life of Frank Buckland). In a letter to Percy Fitzgerald, Nov. 11, 1869, Dickens referred to an article on monkeys as having been "exceedingly well done" by Buckland in Land and Water
      Buckland was responsible for the appearance in H.W. of "Tremendous Bores" by his friend Roberts; in the Office Book, the item is recorded as by "Roberts per Frank Buckland." In the Office Book, "An Immeasurable Wonder" by Robertson is recorded as by "Robertson per F. Buckland"; the Buckland notation is marked out.
