Detour to Buzzards Bay

In writing about these suffragists, detours from Scituate are common. The Smiths living in East Boston. Beatrice traveling around the country, including Clarksburg, WV. And now Buzzards Bay, MA.


Beatrice wrote Swinburne Dec. 9, 1918, recording the final rupture of their marriage. He had fallen in love with a lady he met two weeks before. She was probably Mary Tudor Garland, whom he would marry in 1921. Starting in January 1919, Beatrice’s letters to Swinburne were often forwarded to Buzzards Bay. Now I think I know why. Mary Tudor Garland had a farm-estate at Buzzards Bay.


I am still researching Mary and Swinburne, but juicy details should appear in the book. Hopefully in the near future, if not too many of these interesting detours appear.
