How very far from a now

“I am perfectly convinced that your present feelings, supposing you were to marry now, would be sufficient for his happiness;–but when I think how very, very far it is from a Now, & take everything that may be, into consideration, I dare not say, ‘determine to accept him.’  The risk is too great for you, unless your own Sentiments prompt it.”

letter to her niece Fanny Knight
November 30, 1814 [114]
