18 September 1814 – Sunday – continuation from Letter of 9th September

[This continued from a letter to Anna Austen begun on Saturday, 9th September]

Sunday 18th– I am very glad dear Anna, that I wrote as I did before this sad Event occurred.  I have now only to add that your G. Mama does not seem the worse now for the Shock.– I shall be very happy to receive more of your work, if more is ready; & you write so fast, that I have great hopes Mr D. will come freighted back with such a Cargo as not all his Hops or his Sheep could equal the value of.

Your Grandmama desires me to say that she will have finished your Shoes tomorrow & thinks they will look very well;– and that she depends upon seeing you, as you promise, before you quit the Country, & hopes you will give her more than a day. — Yrs affec:ly
J. Austen
