“I dont pay very much heed to the things you said about him [Sir Sidney Boulton was the man Emily had originally intended to marry and also Shackleton’s underwriter at Lloyd’s of London], for I know that you are not the type of woman to be carried away especially with your eyes open and after all the children are an asset and an anchor to you.”

— letter to Emily

[“A sort of flashlight view of the insurance situation from the beginning of the eighteenth century down to this evening…”: from Lloyd’s, Its History, Its Organization and Its Activities, Sidney Boulton, 1921]
