'I am in the Yellow room-very literally-for I am writing in it at this moment. It seems odd to me to have such a great place all to myself, and to be at Godmersham without you is also odd'.
At first, I thought Jane was simply missing Cassandra and wishing her at Godmermersham as well. Then, reading some comments on Mrs JA (James' wife ?);
'Mrs JA seems rather surprised at the Maitlands drinking tea with you, but that does not prevent my approving it',
reminds me of Fanny Dashwood (S&S) and makes me wonder if Jane felt somewhat lost among the family party at Godmersham ?
Or, perhaps the presence of Mrs JA casts a pall for Jane ?
Lucky the hooue is plenty big for guests ! Lovely engraving and photo of Godmersham, thanks.
