Leslie Stephen with Troy, 1875

Leslie Stephen with Troy

Leslie Stephen withdrew from society and became more of a recluse after the death of his wife and mother in 1875. “I am, I think, one of the most easily bored of mankind; I cannot bear long sittings with dull people and even when alone in my family I am sometimes as restless as a hyena.” Stephen is seen here with his collie Troy.
