In 1929 Julian embarked on two-year affair with Helen Souter. She was an undergraduate of Girton College, reading English. He wrote to her: 'You are infinitely more important to me than anything else in the world or ever has been' and about her 'Helen and I are established at Charleston in a rather Wordsworthian state of rural bliss, recovering from Cambridge and tripos.' In 1933 she married Christopher Morris, a History don at King's College, and became a teacher of English at Homerton College, Cambridge.
