An evening in Bath

“Another stupid party last night; perhaps if larger they might be less intolerable, but here there were only just enough to make one card table, with six people to look over, & talk nonsense to each other.”

letter to Cassandra
May 13, 1801 [36]

I have a feeling this is one of the reasons Jane disliked Bath, all the social engagements, with intolerable people talking nonsense to each other.

    Exactly, Jane!
    How tedious it would have been to have lived in that society.Its very applicable in society today…………one meets people who are total against everything that one believes in, or is that just me?
