Excerpt from Volume The First by Jane Austen

The Three Sisters
A Novel

Letter 1st

MISS STANHOPE TO MRS…

MY DEAR FANNY

I am the happiest creature in the World, for I have received an offer of marriage from Mr Watts. It is the first I have ever had & I hardly know how to value it enough. How I will Triumph over the Duttons! I do not intend to accept it, as least I believe not, but as I am not quite certain I gave him an equivocal answer & left him. And that you may be able to judge of his merits & the situation of affairs I will give you an account of them. He is quite an old Man, about two & thirty, ver plain so plain that I cannot bear to look at him. He is extremely disagreeable & I hate him more than anybody else in the world. He has a large fortune & will make great Settlements on me; but then he is very healthy. In short I do not know what to do. If I refuse him he as good as told me that he should offer himself to Sophia and if she refused him to Georgiana, & I could not bear to have either of them married before me. If I accept him I know I shall be miserable all the rest of my Life, for he is very ill tempered & peevish extremely jealous, & so stingy that there is no living in the house with him. He told me he should mention the affair to Mama, but I insisted upon it that he did not for very likely she would make me marry him whether I would or no; however probably he has before now, for he never does anything he is desired to do. I believe I shall have him. It will be such a triumph to be married before Sophy, Georgiana & the Duttons; And he promised to have a new Carriage on the occasion, but we almost quarreled about the color, for I insisted upon its being blue spotted with silver, & he declared it should be plain Chocolate; & to provoke me more said it should be just as low as his old one. I wont have him I declare. He said he should come again tomorrow & take my final answer, so I believe I must get him while I can. I know the Duttons will envy me & I shall be able to chaperone Sophy & Georgiana to all the Winter Balls. But then what will be the use of that when very likely he wont let me go myself, for I know he hates dancing & [has a great idea of Womens never going from home] what he hates himself he has no idea of any other person’s liking; & besides he talks a great deal of Women’s always Staying at home & such stuff. I believe I shant have him; I would refuse him at once if I were certain that neither of my Sisters would accept him, & that if they did not, he would not offer to the Duttons. I cannot run such a risk, so, if he will promise to have the Carriage ordered as I like, I will have him, if not he may ride in it by himself for me. I hope you like my determination; I can think of nothing better, And am your ever Affecte

MARY STANHOPE
