in consequence of the missive, A sacrifice to the Arts of a Fat Woman, penned by JulieW
A reference to the "arts of a fat woman" seems shocking to me - and I'm alive in the 21st Century when we're all supposed to be jaded and numbed to that sort of thing so my head spins at the thought of how something like this was perceived back then. Or maybe I just don't have a strong enough understanding of the time period to be commenting.....
Anyway...Brava Miss Austen for being so honest in your private letters that all of us are now privy to read :)
