Jane Austen’s gratitude (post title) was for a long newsy letter from Cassandra. Mine is for your patience — I fell behind again!!! I made it nine months posting the “daily” letters on (or near) the dates they were written, but work and life got me backed up for a while. So, without further ado, here are several letters to get caught up with — all with exceedingly quotable lines, lots of family detail (including, sadly, the death of Edward’s wife Elizabeth), and offering an excuse to make a cup of tea, curl into a comfy chair for a while, and immerse yourself in Jane Austen’s world for an hour!!!
