Jane Austen Quote of the Day

My dear Aunt Cassandra,

Papa is much obliged to you for ordering the scrubby firs to be cut down; I think he was rather frightened at first about the great oak. Fanny quite believed it, for she exclaimed 'Dear me, what a pity, how could they be so stupid!'

Letter to Cassandra from her niece Elizabeth Knight, included in a letter from Jane October 21st 1813, which begins, "I think Lizzy's letter will entertain you."
