I should inevitably fall a Sacrifice to the arts of some fat Woman who would make me drunk with Small Beer.

One letter today, from 18th September 1796, and one addendum to a letter to niece Anna which was begun the prior week in 1804.  The post title quote is from the 1796 letter, which contains several quotables — and one more often quoted — but this line always tickled me.

18th September 1796

18th September 1804 (addendum to letter from previous week)
