Happy 239th Birthday, dearest Jane!

Happy Birthday JANE!!!!!!!!!!!!


Mi è stato detto, ma non so se corrisponde al vero, che era stata all’origine una locanda di passaggio, ed era in una buona posizione per esserlo, proprio dove la strada da Winchester incrociava quella per Londra e Gosport. L’incrocio tra le due strade era parzialmente occupato da un ampio stagno poco profondo, che credo sia da tempo diventato terreno asciutto.

La porta d’ingresso si apriva sulla strada, e una staccionata molto stretta da entrambe le parti proteggeva la casa dai possibili urti dei veicoli di passaggio.

‘Mr. Johnson was once upon atime about 53; in, a twelve-month afterwards he was 54, which so much delighted him that he was determined to celebrate his next Birth day by giving a Masquerade to his Children and Freinds. Accordingly on the Day he attained his 55th year tickets were dispatched to all his Neighbours to that purpose.’ (‘Jack and Alice, a novel’)
Today at Chawton House Library we are celebrating three birthdays!
Happy Birthday to our very own Jane Austen ! Today 239 years ago, the Reverend and Mrs. Austen welcomed their seventh child and second daughter into the world. Despite not giving a masquerade to celebrate this joyous event, we do advise all our followers and friend to have a piece of cake (or a glass of wine, if you prefer) to celebrate Austen’s 239th birthday. But be warned! Do not end your celebration in the same style as the Johnson family by ‘a bottle being pretty briskly pushed around […], the whole party not excepting even Virtue were carried home, Dead Drunk’ (‘Jack and Alice, a Novel’)`
Also Happy Birthday to Elizabeth Carter, translator, poetess, essayist and correspondent; this formidable bluestocking was born today 297 years ago! Her friend Samuel Johnson described her as “My old friend, Mrs. Carter, could make a pudding as well as translate Epictetus from the Greek, and work a handkerchief as well as compose a poem.” A woman worth remembering and celebrating, so do not forget to make a toast for her as well!
And last, but definitely not least, Happy Birthday to our very own Business and Administration Apprentice, Emily Roynane who turns 22 years old today!
