My Kind Hero? I Await!

I do trust that this letter will return to visit you here, but I want to communicate so much that I must for a few minutes fancy it is not in vain to write.

Of our meeting – I have no doubt that we shall prove admirable philosophers on that as well as former occasions when we have been so successfully indifferent…

I never like to MAKE scenes even on the most favourable opportunities – when a “Heroine” would say and do most, I generally say and do least.

I cannot say how kind Mrs. Leigh has been to me – it will not be forgotten.

O for tomorrow’s post! I walk to meet it every day and sit in the blacksmith’s cottage till it arrives.

A woman came in also a few days ago, and not knowing me, began to enquire about the “bonny lad” who was to tak awa the “canny hinny.”

Seaham Hall (October 23 1814)
