"My ideas flow so rapidly that I have not time to express them -- by which means my letters sometimes convey no ideas at all to my correspondents."
I admit I chose this quote this for the nostalgia value. Does anyone else remember "doing that Bingley thing (DTBT)"? -- used in the days before oops insurance when a poster left off a word or two?
I tend to think that JA would agree with Darcy assessment of Bingley's writing. I wonder if she had a correspondant who wrote like Bingley?
you are really proud of your defects in writing, because you consider them as proceeding from a rapidity of thought and carelessness of execution, which if not estimable, you think at least highly interesting. The power of doing anything with quickness is always much prized by the possessor, and often without any attention to the imperfection of the performance.
