27 October 1800 – Monday – continuation from two days prior

[Letter continued from one begun on Saturday, 27 October 1800]

Monday.  I am glad I had no means of sending this yesterday, as I am now able to thank you for executing my Commissions so well.– I like the Gown very much & my Mother thinks it very ugly.– I like the Stockings also very much & greatly prefer having only two pair of that quality, to three of an inferior sort.– The Combs are very pretty, & I am much obliged to you for your present; but am sorry you should make me so many.– The Pink Shoes are not particularly beautiful, but they fit me very well–the others are faultless.– I am glad that I have still my Cloak to expect.  Among my other obligations, I must not omit to number your writing me so long a letter in a time of such hurry.  I am amused by your going to Milgate at last– & glad that you have so charming a day for your Journey home.–

[Next paragraph upside down at top of first page]

The weather does not know how to be otherwise than fine.– I am surprised that Mrs Marriot should not be taller– Surely You have made a mistake.– Did Mr Roland make you look well?–

Yours affec:ly    JA.

[Postscript below address panel]

My father approves his Stockings very highly–& finds no fault with any part of Mrs Hancock’s bill except the charge of 3s. 6d for the Packing box.–
