    Summary

    Footnote [2]. Beatrice’s letters note her husband, Isaac Higgintoot’s (1740-77) close relationship with Dorothy’s husband, Edward. Noting in her personal journals, on news of her husband’s death, “He [Edward] seems even more devastated than I.” (February 1778). This passage, along with his noted close friendship, hints to Beatrice’s husband being queer as well; her relationship with him perhaps an early instance of a true “lavender marriage.” However, this is a topic for another paper, and current evidence is insufficient to support this assertion.  

    Isaac's not just a footnote in history—he's a queer footnote in history. Here's what happens after.
