in consequence of the missive, I agree..., penned by KerstinM
"I do assure you that I am not one of those young ladies (if such young ladies there are) who are so daring as to risk their happiness on the chance of being asked a second time ... I do assure you, sir, that I have no pretension whatever to that kind of elegance which consists in tormenting a respectable man."
