In her private correspondence, Harriet sometimes betrays her frustration. She had, she wrote, ”a great desire to distinguish myself in some way or other and if I were only a man I might do it, but as a woman I can't try, for I hold it wrong for women to hunt after notoriety... clearly I ought to have been Harry Scott instead of Hattie Scott.” From correspondence between Harriet Scott and Edward Ramsay, 1865.
