Jane Austen Quote of the Day

I am glad you like our caps—but Fanny is out of conceit with hers already; ... She is rather out of luck, to like neither her gown nor her Cap...—I consider it as a thing of course at her time of Life—one of the sweet taxes of Youth to chuse in a hurry & make bad bargains.

September 23rd portion of letter to Cassandra from Godmersham, September, 23-24, 1813
