Dirty lodgings in Lyme

“We are quite settled in our Lodgings by this time, as you may suppose, & everything goes on in the usual order.  The servants behave very well & make no difficulties, tho’ nothing certainly can exceed the inconvenience of the Offices, except the general Dirtiness of the House & furniture, & all it’s Inhabitants.”

letter to Cassandra
September 14, 1804 [39]

I have to say, my own experiences in Lyme were similar!  Ugh.
