20 November 1814 – Sunday – continued from previous two days

Sunday.  Your Papa had given me messages to you, but they are unnecessary, as he writes by this post to Aunt Louisa.  We had a pleasant party yesterday, at least we found it so.– It is delightful to see him so chearful & confident.– Aunt Cass: & I dine at the Gt House to day.  We shall be a snug half dozen.– [continued below address panel]  Miss Lloyd came, as we expected, yesterday, & desires her Love.– She is very happy to hear of your learning the Harp.– I do not mean to send you what I owe Miss Hare, because I think you would rather not be paid beforehand.–  Yours very affecly
J. Austen

[Postscript upside down at top of p1]

Your trying to excite your own feelings by a visit to his room amused me excessively.– The dirty Shaving Rag was exquisite!– Such a circumstance ought to be in print.  Much too good to be lost.–

Remember me particularly to Fanny C.– I thought you wd like to hear from me, while you were with her.
