Elizabeth's letter to Jane Hunsford Near Waterham Kent April 18th Dear Jane, I hope everything is fine in Hunsford all our sisters are fine and in good health I also hope you are in good health.

I was glad to be proposed my some of a high standard but was upset by the insults he put across to me and my family. How I very much wish you were here to comfort me at this horrible time.

Yours faithfully Miss Elizabeth Bennett Moinuddin Patel 11PR ...read more.
