I've heard that William Ernest Henley had a foot amputated; this is not mentioned anywhere in the article.
- Yes. 'Henley amputation' gives a number of good Google hits. It was as a result of TB, and can be added. Charles Matthews 08:21, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
Henley was the inspiration for Stevenson's Long John Silver. This should be added...
Something has obviously been cut off at the beginning of the second paragraph.

"Consumption of the spine" is archaeic slang for syphilis, (consumption being TB) so i wonder if that's what his "tuberculosis of the bone" is referring to syphilis?
Is it worth including that the school that he attended as a child, The Crypt School Gloucester, has one of its four school houses named after him? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:12, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
