Lady Low

Lady Low’s biographical details have not been traced but from references to her in Schreiner’s letters, she was clearly a woman Schreiner saw a fair amount of in London during the period of the First World War. It also seems likely that she was a connection of Edward Carpenter and perhaps Edith Ellis. In 1916 Schreiner wrote to Carpenter about Lady Low commenting, “I grow near her & nearer her in feeling”.
