It seems JA really reigned herself in 'The visit'. Everything is so well curbed but the wit is there.
The politeness is hilarious:
There are a lot of apologies and manners at the table shown towards the guests;
More LOL lines that I find so funny, about Sophy (the alcohol drinker);
I do like this little piece by young JA very much!!!!
It's not clear when 'Grandmother's time' was.
One interesting bit was the grandmother din't like company;
'..on account of an unfortunate impediment in her speech, which she was sensible of being very disagreable to her inmates.'
I vaguely remember reading somewhere that Mr.Bigg-Wither who proposed to JA and was accepted before being rejected also had an unfortunate impediment in his speech.
