Oh! How I can relate to today’s title quotation, taken from Jane Austen’s letter (a continuation from the previous day) of 7 November 1813. I’m a little late with that one, and the letter written over two days from 8 to 9 November 1800, as I travelled out west on Friday 7th to visit family. And I am indeed sitting in idleness by a good fire in a well-proportioned room at the moment, outside of Denver.
I am here ’til Tuesday, then off to Seattle area for a couple days to visit a dear friend, then to Montana for another family visit before heading home next week. So my apologies if letters are a little sporadic in coming… wholly dependent on time and connectivity. In the meantime, however, enjoy these three — they are as delightful as the sentiment expressed in today’s quotation.
7th November 1813 (continued from 6th)
