Throughout the letters read till now one senses JA's mood of pain, sadness, and unhappiness.
I'm sure Cassandra did too!!!
So why didn't she go over so that JA could have company and some solace derived from their being together?
Was there something urgent that kept her away?
Several lines in her letters show such a need for Cassandra's presence.
She seems to have written more often than usual, and feels the need to explain this frequency.
As you have by this time received my last letter, it is fit that I should begin another.
Poor Miss Austen!- It appears to me that I have rather oppressed you of late by the frequency of my letters.
I felt quite depressed when JA gives the dance at Manydown and her gown description as the reason for writing so soon.
Do not be surprised, or imagine that Frank is come if I write again soon.It will only be to say that I am going to M-& to answer your question about my gown.
I should not however have thought it necessary to write so soon, but for the arrival of a letter from Charles to myself.
On another note.
"I am warmer here without any fire than I have been lately with an excellent one."
I don't know if she's warmer here because of too many cloathes or because she's finally away from the scene of unhappiness, where she did have excellent fire and was'nt warm enough.
