I don’t know how it is that we haven’t featured Captain Wentworth’s letter here yet. <swoon…> Happy Monday, dear readers!
“I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone forever.”
Captain Wentworth’s letter to Anne, in the Musgrove’s room at the White Hart in Bath
Persuasion, volume 2, chapter 11
