Our Nuptials! Jealous Much?

Seaham Hall (December 7 1814)

Dearest – “I will make up for the past.”

Talk and tattle are very harmless and would not depend on your locality.

The good people will be tired of conjectures in time – in a very short time, I should think, when we confute the greater part of them.

We have always meant that “the happy nuptials” should be as obscure and ignoble as possible, whether fashionable or not; so you need not fear any “outward and visible signs” – my father’s epithalamium excepted – to which I suppose you will not object, unless from some poetical jealously..

What do you think I have been doing last?

Playing a rubber of whist for the amusement of the old gamesters…

Farewell – I will not wish you any prosperity till you are on the road – not “to ruin.”
