Love and Friendship

by Jane Austen, 1871

A preview of chapter 1:

LETTER the FIRST

From ISABEL to LAURA

How often, in answer to my repeated intreaties that you would

give my Daughter a regular detail of the Misfortunes and

Adventures of your Life, have you said “No, my freind never will

I comply with your request till I may be no longer in Danger of

again experiencing such dreadful ones.”

Surely that time is now at hand. You are this day 55. If a

woman may ever be said to be in safety from the determined

Perseverance of disagreeable Lovers and the cruel Persecutions of

obstinate Fathers, surely it must be at such a time of Life.

Isabel

LETTER 2nd

LAURA to ISABEL

Altho’ I cannot agree with you in supposing that I shall never

again be exposed to Misfortunes as unmerited as those I have

already experienced, yet to avoid the imputation of Obstinacy or

ill-nature, I will gratify the curiosity of your daughter; and

may the fortitude with which I have suffered the many afflictions

of my past Life, prove to her a useful lesson for the support of

those which may befall her in her own.

Laura
