1880s sensibilities probably precluded open discussion of Lord B’s affairs of the heart!  The same thing happened with John Forster on Dickens … it is good to be reminded sometimes that the ideas of what is appropriate for a biography change over time. I don’t think I will put this on my ‘to read’ list though, thanks Helen!
