"City of dreadful night; cut throats, don't mention political news" Read the full letter
Leslie Stephen (1832 - 1904) was a British writer, literary critic and pioneering editor of the Dictionary of National Biography. He was also father of the novelist Virginia Woolf. From a letter to Ellis, it appears Schreiner met Leslie Stephen in 1887 in Clarens, Switzerland, and it can be assumed she was acquainted with him from 1880s London literary circles.
