Fascinating article! I’d never heard of her, a very colorful figure connected to Bloomsbury in a number of ways. It is exciting to contemplate the likelihood there are more tertiary characters like Nancy Morris waiting for their stories to be told. Thanks for sharing.

I have no doubt that a few more will pop up!
