in consequence of the missive, I am bewildered? Comment from Letter 4, penned by Robbin
Later in the letter Jane says, 'Frank has turned a very nice little butter-churn for Fanny." So that makes me think he has learned to work a lathe and turning refers to turning the wood while it is carved. Funny to think of the men of the day enjoying a hobby that is a craft like that.
