Oh! Mr Darcy!


4 Sydney Place Bath, December 1802. Yesterday, to my amazement, Mr Harris Bigg-Wither of Manydown park offered me his hand in marriage! No! Of course not! I screamed- You kind, lumpen, rich, uneducated, landowning, unsuitable boy of only one and twenty. Dear reader, of course propriety wouldn’t allow such a cruel response. Yes- thank you Sir- I am honoured were my actual words before fleeing the room, sobbing with Cassandra all night and escaping back to Bath (something I thought I would never write). And even had he leapt like Mr Darcy straight into the Kennet and Avon Canal, and dripped all the way back through Sydney Gardens, my answer would have been the same.
