Doesn’t that sound lovely?… snug in a warm room on a lovely morning? I’d say “fancy me” too!
Today’s letter is from 1813 and chock full of lovely snippets as Jane Austen engages in visits, pleasant parties, concerts and a ‘day of dissipation,’ for her last few days before departing her stay in Kent. This letter is incomplete, but will delight us with its conclusion tomorrow — in the meantime, enjoy Mrs Paget’s ‘female government’, Lady Honeywood’s ‘perfect sort of woman’ and the ‘disputable Beauty’ of Sophia Deedes… and of course, Lady Eliz. Hatton & Annamaria who “came & they sat & they went.” I hope you’ll come and sit and read… and enjoy!
