Too excellent creature!

“I can hardly write.  I am every instant hearing something which overpowers me.  You sink your voice, but I can distinguish the tones of that voice when they would be lost on others.  Too good, too excellent creature!  You do us justice, indeed.  You do believe that there is true attachment and constancy among men.  Believe it to be most fervent, most undeviating, in    F.W.”

Captain Wentworth’s letter to Anne, in the Musgrove’s room at the White Hart in Bath
