“I do not know what is the matter with me to day, but I cannot write quietly;…

… I am always wandering away into some exclamation or other.–Fortunately, I have nothing very particular to say.–”

Fortunately for us, even Jane Austen’s “wandering away” over nothings is entertaining!!!  Today’s letter from 1799 is written from Queen Square, Bath and features a few “nothing very particulars” that have become well known among her admirers.  Enjoy!
