in consequence of the missive, Letter 38:Facsimiles and Topaze Crosses., penned by JulieW
The crosses are beautiful and the writing is very elegant. In some ways, the closeness of JA and her sister is shown in these letters as well. Perhaps Cassandra was so used to them, and the writing between the lines, she could read them quickly. I don't usually have much trouble reading different hands, but I do have trouble with this one. Maybe it's the feeling that it's not really written for me, in a sense, and I do get that feeling with the letter JA writes for Cassandra, that they are between close allies/confidantes?
(An aside, I do like the way JA's writing life was not impeded by Cassandra, as some sisters can be competitive in dynamic. It does not seem JA had any fears in this regard. A great gift of a friendship and trust between sisters!)
