Julia Duckworth

In 1895, after reading Julia’s early letters to Herbert Duckworth, Leslie Stephen wrote: “There was a touch of pain—I cannot deny it—in the clear consciousness which they produced that my darling Julia had owed her purest happiness to another man.” In her letters to Herbert, Julia “made a complete surrender of herself in the fullest sense: she would have no reserves from her lover, and confesses her entire devotion to him.”
