Lucie, Lady Duff-Gordon
This article is about the mid-19th century author; you may be looking for the early 20th century fashion designer Lucy, Lady Duff-Gordon.

Lucie, Lady Duff-Gordon (1821 - 1869) was an English writer. She is best known for her Letters from Egypt and Letters from the Cape. She had TB and went to Africa for her health.

In Egypt, she settled in the tiny town of Luxor where she was the only European, learned Arabic and mingled with the locals, both male and female. She seems to have been very tolerant and well-liked. Her letters home are enlivened by her humor, her outrage at the ruling Ottomans, and many personal stories gleaned from the people around her.

Most of her letters are to her husband, Alexander Duff-Gordon and her mother, Mrs. Sarah Austin.
