Example text

My invitation still stands and we shall certainly expect you next Sunday and look forward to hearing all about your child-marriage and to the pleasure of laughing at your expense. ' I thus purged myself of the canker of untruth, and I never thenceforward hesitated to talk of my married state wherever necessary.

She gave me her London address and invited me to dine at her house every Sunday. On special occasions also she would invite me, help me to conquer my bashfulness and introduce me to young ladies and draw me into conversation with them. Particularly marked out for these conversations was a young lady who stayed with her, and often we would be left entirely alone together.

You have laid me under an everlasting debt of gratitude by your kindness and solicitude. ' Let the reader know that I could not have written such a letter in a moment.
