Birthday Entries: January 25, 2016

Woolf in Vogue-- COlor-Reduction Woodcut, 1998
Who was I then? Adeline Virginia Stephen, the second daughter of Leslie and Julia Prinsep Stephen, born on 25th January 1882, descended from a great many people, some famous, others obscure; born into a large connection, born not of rich parents, but of well-to-do parents, born into a very communicative, literate, letter writing, visiting, articulate, late nineteenth century world.

“A Sketch of the Past” (MOB 65)
