The Other Women

The other woman in my last post was Evelyn. The relationship only lasted a month. Then in January 1919, Swinburne was off to Buzzards Bay. There he would spend time with Marie Tudor Garland, who owned Bay End Farm there. She was wealthy and attractive. They would marry in 1921. But that's not all (and not his only affair). You may need to read my book to learn the rest of the story.


Many thanks to the Ralph M. Pearson Collection, Fray Angelico Chavez History Library, The Palace of the Governors, Santa Fe, NM. They sent me copies of these beautifully written love letters from Swinburne to Evelyn, Dec. 1918-Jan. 1919. And they have letters from Beatrice to Swinburne, but I have enough for now.
