'Emma- Jane Austen. Remorseful fictional letter on actions at Box Hill picnic.'

Extracts from this document...


52 Brunswick Square Bloomsbury, 5045 London My dear Isabella, I hope this letter finds you and your darling family well. Papa has requested that I ask after little John and implores you refer him to Mr Perry, as the last we heard, he was in bed in a sickly condition.

I feel I should apologise; it would certainly be a most self-degrading gesture, yet if I were to come across Mr Knightley on my way, he may see I am truly sorry and mean to repent my actions.
