Sophia was rather above the middle size; most elegantly formed. A soft languor spread over her lovely features, but increased their Beauty. -- It was the Characteristic of her Mind. -- She was all Sensibility and Feeling. We flew into each other's arms and after having exchanged vows of mutual Freindship for the rest of our Lives, instantly unfolded to each other the most inward secrets of our Hearts. (Letter 8th)
Laura describes Augusta to be “of the middle size” in Letter 7th and later in Letter 8th she describes Sophia to be above the middle size and elegantly formed. Is JA is speaking of height? Did I miss something which would make this clear or is it a family joke or just something I can never know for sure? :D
