Just when I thought I could see the end of researching and writing (but not publishing), I tackled a pile of letters from Beatrice. The NYPL's collection has 140 of her letters, and she wrote an average of 7 pages per letter in compelling prose. Yes, around 1,000 pages. I can cover about 5% each day if I work hard all day and night. Plus it is difficult to read about the disintegration of her marriage, even though this happened over 100 years ago. But I feel I must do it. I just hope for a faster pace.
