Despite her advanced age, she had played a major role in the effort. She apparently made the diary entry immediately after returning home from a meeting with the University of Rochester's Board of Trustees.)

Said in 1920, when Heap and her co-editor, Margaret Anderson, were on trial for publishing sections of the Irish novelist James Joyce's controversial masterpiece, Ulysses, in their literary journal, The Little Review. Two years later, the American expatriate Sylvia Beach, who had become a Parisian bookseller, published the complete Ulysses in book form. Here, Heap was reacting privately to the prosecutor's assertion in court that reading Ulysses would endanger "the minds of young girls." Ultimately, Anderson and Heap were convicted and fined $100.)
