…scenes of great agitation awaited us

But never fear — the “agitation” described in this letter from 27th August 1805 were those attending to communications and coordination for Jane Austen’s friend Harriot to attend a ball, just as her friend was arriving.  The worst that came of it (at least as indicated in this letter) is that they did not dine until six!!!  🙂
