? December 1816 – a Thursday – to Anna Lefroy

My dear Anna

Your Grandmama is very much obliged to you for the Turkey, but cannot help grieving that you should not keep it for yourselves.  Such Highmindedness is almost more than she can bear.– She will be very glad of better weather that she may see you again & so we shall all.

Yours affecately
J. Austen
