‘Everything seems to turn to snow this winter…’

The winter of 1809 was apparently a severe one in Southampton as this letter of 17 January in that year refers to the weather on several occasions. Regarding a book they are reading if not fully appreciating, she writes, “If the warmth of her Language could affect the Body, it might be worth reading in this weather”

Of other interest is that, while the January letters so far (from 1801) have talked of details related to the family’s move from Steventon to Bath, this one from 1809 suggests their final move some months later to Chawton.
