I waffled as to a letter quotation for today’s post title. So much of Jane Austen’s letters involve observances on the weather, and this one from 9th July 1816 spends a bit of time pondering it as well–so that is what I ended up using. This particular letter, however, is written to JA’s nephew, James Edward (Edward) and I love the teasing she engages in with him (how wonderful it is that we have a few surviving letters to nephews, nieces and brothers for a different perspective than we get with those written to Cassandra.)
Do read it! The teasing about school (and school boys) alone is worth it!
