 Letter From Rosings

“Your mail, sir” Darcy’s man handed him the bundle of letters.

“Thank you”.

Among the letters of business was one from Rosings.

“What now?” he asked aloud, expecting another blistering letter from his aunt, Lady Catherine De Bourg, insulting his fiancée, Elizabeth Bennet and demanding that the marriage be halted.

But he was surprised to see that the letter was from Lady Catherine’s daughter and his cousin, Anne.

“Dear cousin Fitzwilliam,

 Do not be alarmed, sir, for I am not writing to you as my mother has. I have always known that we are ill matched and any marriage between us would be an unhappy one, despite what my mother believes.

 When Miss Bennet came with Mr. and Mrs. Collins to Rosings last year, I saw how much you loved her.  She is spirited and intelligent and I knew she was the only woman you would ever be happy with.

 Please convey my blessing  your fiancé and I look forward to the day when I may call her cousin.

 Yours, etc

Anne De Bourg”.

 

“Now that is a nice surprise” Darcy thought to himself.

“Your carriage is waiting, sir” Mrs. Reynolds knocked on the door.

“Thank you” he replied. He had some business to complete in Meryton before spending the rest of the day with Elizabeth.  She would be pleased with the letter from Rosings.
