As for ourselves we’re very well;
As unaffected prose will tell. –
Cassandra’s pen will paint our state,
The many comforts that await
Our Chawton home, how much we find
Already in it, to our mind;
And how convinced, that when complete
It will all other Houses beat
That ever have been made or mended,
With rooms concise, or rooms distended.
You’ll find us very snug next year,
For now it often does delight us
To fancy them just over-right-us. –

Jane Austen in a letter to her brother Francis Austen, 26 July 1809
