in consequence of the missive, Letter #58: Sad News, penned by kathleen (elder)
I don't understand what this means. It was my understanding that mourning in JA's era was a pretty rigid affair. I mean that there were rules and one followed them, period; i.e., ladies wore black, it lasted for a certain length of time, depending on your relation to the deceased, etc. What other kind of directions would JA be asking Cassandra for?
Thank you in advance for any information.
