Jane Austen Quote of the Day

Miss Fletcher and I were very thick, but I am the thinnest of the two—She wore her purple Muslin, which is pretty enough, tho' it does not become her complextion. There are two Traits in her Character which are pleasing; namely, she admires Camilla, & drinks no cream in her Tea.

Letter to Cassandra, September 15-16, 1796
