Sam Gwynn said: "Some of this could be sheer Van-ity."

Yes, if by that you mean Thackeray's Vanity Fair. Note here the reference to
the "Serene Court":

I don't really know if this is what VN had in mind or if it has any
connection to Ada, but I thought Sam's comment too coincidental to leave
alone.

Best,
