Unlucky me!

“My Evening Engagement & walk was with Miss Armstrong, who had called on me the day before, & gently upbraided me in her turn with change of manners to her since she had been in Bath, or at least of late.  Unlucky me! that my notice should be of such consequence & my Manners so bad!”

letter to Cassandra
April 21, 1805 [44]

Evidently Jane met Miss Armstrong in Lyme the previous fall, and concluded that she had “some degree of Sense” but no “Wit or Genius.”
