The following properties of the Holmes space H are established: (i)H has the Metric Approximation Property (MAP).(ii)The w*-closure of the set of extreme points of the unit ball BH* of the dual space H* is the whole ball BH*. A family of compact subsets X ⊂ U of the Urysohn space is described such that the Lipschitz-free space F (X) has a finite-dimensional decomposition and is not complemented in H.
