I'm not at all sure that Sapphism was judged particularly harshly in the eighteenth century (in England); I get the feeling it was seen (if thought about at all) as no big deal, just more or less "fooling around", something which "real" (i.e. heterosexual) sex would displace sooner or later. The Ladies of Langollen might have been snickered about behind doors (I have no evidence that they were; I'm only saying might) but they lived long and happy lives, without harsh judgement.
and we only know about them because of their social status and literacy; who knows how many quiet, cheerful partnerships there were in small villages or unremarkable farms?
