This chapter examines Zachary Macaulay's relationship with his wife Selina Mills. It describes the rocky and bizarre beginnings of their romantic relationship, and highlights the problem of separation in light of Macaulay's work as deputy governor and later governor of Sierra Leone. The chapter discusses Macaulay's fidelity and suggests that despite his friendship with a number of women, there was never a whiff of evidence that he had any affairs or was deflected away at any time from his passionate love for Selina.
