THE HOMESTEAD, KIMBERLEY,
25th March., 1895
MY married life satisfies even the high ideal of what marriage might be which has haunted me ever since I was a little child.
You refer to that woman as the man's "mistress." But there is nothing to imply that the man supported her, and no woman can rightly be called a mistress and still less a prostitute, unless she sells her body in return for gain. To me the punty of a sex relation between a man and a woman lies finally in the fact that it is not a matter of material considerations. That is nearly the only point in the woman question on which you never seem to see clearly.
