Finding people disagreeable

“I cannot anyhow continue to find people agreable [sic];–I respect Mrs. Chamberlayne for doing her hair well, but cannot feel a more tender sentiment.–Miss Langley is like any other short girl with a broad nose & wide mouth, fashionable dress, & exposed bosom.”

letter to Cassandra
May 13, 1801 [36]

As I type this, I’m sitting at Panera’s, and the gentleman across the room from me has decided to make his sales calls, loudly, in Spanish.  (It would be just as annoying in English, I think.)  Anyway, I am not finding people agreeable.
