Conrad first met Hope, a lifelong non-literary friend, in January of 1880 through the sailing agent James Sutherland. He took Conrad out on his cruising yawl Nellie, immortalized in "Heart of Darkness." After the death of Conrad's uncle in 1895, the author told his future wife that "Mr. and Mrs. Hope, as far as feeling could go, were the nearest relations he had in the world" (see Jessie Conrad, Joseph Conrad as I knew Him).
