Description

This collection of 161 letters provides a look at the intimate inner workings of an upper-middle-class Victorian household. Written by a young woman, Louise Creighton, to her mother, the letters start during Louise's honeymoon in Paris, and end in November 1880, just before her mother's death. Louise Creighton was the wife and biographer of Bishop Mandell Creighton, but has also emerged as a moderate Christian feminist in an era when women's causes were usually articulated by more militant voices. The letters also reveal much about the academic and social life in Oxford and later in Northumberland where Louise records her duties as a vicar's wife. Other sections in her letters are descriptions of managing her household of servants, and her social activities.
