- In The Ionian Mission, Stephen acquaints Diana with the basics of Andrew Wray's scrublike behavior, including the fact that he cheated Jack at cards, and Diana herself is aware of Wray's nature. How, then, did she so easily believe Wray when he told her that Stephen had been brazenly cheating on her? One would have supposed that, knowing what she did, she'd have been quite wary of anything he told her about Stephen and Jack.
- If her lines in The Letter of Marque are any indication, Wray never told her directly. He was content to intercept letters and let the rumors — particularly those concerning Laura Fielding — do their work.
