It seems love is in the air… or is it!? Letters for today (including one begun yesterday which I had no opportunity to post as I was travelling all day) include some commentary in 1798 on Jane Austen’s dalliances (or not) — from which today’s post title is taken — and also an illuminating and lengthy ‘conversation’ from 1814 where Jane Austen opines on niece Fanny’s feelings for a certain Mr John Plumtre. Lots of quotables in these letters — enjoy!!!
18th November 1798 (continuation from 17th)
