|Most ominous and familiar! Wonderful, indeed!

in consequence of the missive, Italy or elopement?, penned by M.lle St.A.
It all sounds most terrifying and ominous (and yet very familiar, so familiar that it reminds me of a novel I read once). How fortunate you are to be faced with such terrors and uncertainty!
But I think this Italian gentleman sounds wicked and capable of the most vile and villainous acts. I shouldn't trust him at all ... and yet there is Italy, and 'tis chance of a lifetime, you know, to travel there!
Italy shall, I think, be the best source of intrigue and gothic adventure for you; if you consent to go, I am certain your life shall be full of such wondrous and star-crossed events as I anticipate my life shall be soon, as I venture forth to Northanger Abbey. But all shall end happily for us, to be sure, as in the best and most thrilling of romance stories.
O, Miss Emily, venture forth to Italy and see what terrible misdeeds unfold, I should! 'Twill be more thrilling than all the best of dreadful novels!
