Letters and Downton!

“…pictures of perfection as you know make me sick & wicked-but there is very good sense in what he says, & I particularly respect him for wishing to think well of all young Ladies; it shews(sp) an amiable & a delicate Mind.—And he deserves better treatment than to be oblinged to read any more of my Works….You may perhaps like the Heroine, as she is almost too good for me”. JA to Fanny Knight Sunday 3/23/1817

From JASNA SW Pasadena reading group:
This group meets every two months. The next meeting will take place on Sunday, Feb. 26, after the completion of Season Two of DOWNTON ABBEY. We will meet at the home of our ever-gracious host, Gayle San Miguel, to discuss this series. We will be examining the Season Two developments thru the lens of one of the quintessential Great War books, TESTAMENT OF YOUTH by Vera Brittain.

“…but I consider everybody as having a right to marry once in their Lives for Love, if they can” -JA to CEA Tuesday Dec. 27,1808

JASNAEastern PA:
wishes you a happy Valentine’s Day. Perhaps you will receive a pianoforte from Broadwood. Or you’ll receive a letter that begins with: “I can listen no longer in silence.”
