The letter today from 1798 is, in fact, very short! Yet Good News for the family Austen it does indeed deliver, from the commonplace to the profound! Jane Austen herself remarks on closing it that though she hasn’t time to write more, she has “written enough to make you very happy & therefore may safely conclude.”
So, what is all the news that was so great as to beg a letter to Cassandra? Read it and find out! 🙂
There is also a letter from 1808, a continuation from the previous day the 27th, which I also previously published on my blog with that day’s letter.
