Delia Bacon (From a daguerrotype taken in May,1853)

"....Yet because she was of rare intellectual force and acuteness, of absolute sincerity and truthfulness, of self annihilating earnestness and devotion in whatever work she entered upon; and because the world is determined that it will speak of her as if it knew her; supplying its lack of knowledge with conjecture or with fable, I purpose to tell it something of Delia Bacon; of what she was, from inheritance and environment ; and what she did."- Theodore Bacon (Her brother)
