in consequence of the missive, Frederick & Elfrida, penned by Cheryl
"THE Uncle of Elfrida was the Father of Frederic; in other words, they were first cousins by the Father's side."
An extremely interesting thing is the way time passes for them - for the 'naming of the day';
"seven days being now expired, together with the lovely Charlotte, since the Captain first spoke to you on the subject."
"Weeks & Fortnights flew away without gaining the least ground; the Cloathes grew out of fashion & at length Capt. Roger & his Lady arrived, to pay a visit to their Mother & introduce to her their beautifull Daughter of eighteen."
They knew how to wait.
This has been a very interesting experience for me. I had never read JA's Juvenilia before and thank you Cheryl for helping us make our way through it in the most amusing and fun manner.
I am looking forward to reading some unread ones and rereading some amusing ones.
Thank you Cheryl.
