Oh, to be respectable

“The Rich are always respectable.”

letter to Cassandra
June 22, 1808 [53]

Jane was joking (as always), because she had just received a gift of money from her brother Edward’s adoptive mother (it’s complicated…), Mrs. Knight.

    I loved this quote! We can see in her books that this image was real. And it still is. That’s why Jane is an universal writer, like her works. From the little place where her stories took place the message goes global.

  2. She is a wit, is she not? Oh, I received your manuscript, Lori, and am looking forward the a wonderful read.
