Animated fooleries

” . . . there I was, & my Cousin George was very kind & talked sense to me every now & then in the intervals of his more animated fooleries with Miss Bendish, who is very young & rather handsome . . .”

letter to Cassandra, about a morning engagement in Bath
April 21, 1805 [44]

Not much here in this quote, but I love that phrase, “animated fooleries.”  This pic is my favorite tea room in Bath, the Bath Bun (across from Sally Lunn’s).
