on letter- writing

Dearest ______,

Of the general trend in women’s letter- writing, Mr. Henry Tilney of Northanger Abbey (Jane Austen, 1817) had only this to say:

“As far as I have had opportunity of judging, it appears to me that the usual style of letter- writing among women is faultless, except in three particulars.”

“And what are they?”

“A general deficiency of subject, a total inattention to stops, and a very frequent ignorance of grammar.”

—–

Pray tell, where did he got the idea? Even then, that comment was such an affront to women’s intellect! Doesn’t you think so?

Now here is a picture of a beautiful plant I took in Dongdaemun which is a very interesting place in Korea with a lot of beautiful photographic, isn’t it?

Have a great week ahead, unyielding Grammarians and all!

Love,

Karlita
