May as well be single

Argh — yesterday was a rough Lyme day.  I’m afraid against my best intentions this has become the occasionally-daily Austen quote.  Happy Friday the 13th!

“Miss Blachford is married, but I have never seen it in the Papers.  And one may as well be single if the Wedding is not to be in print.”

letter to her niece Anna Lefroy
March 1815 [118]

One Response to May as well be single

  1. I didn’t even know it was Fri. the 13th! I was in the ER with a severe migraine. Sorry your having a hard time with the Lyme disease, it cannot be easy. Quote away. Complain away. Jane wouldn’t have it any other way!
