Life And Letters Of Maria Edgeworth/Volume 2/Letter 23
To MRS. RUXTON.
FROGNEL, HAMPSTEAD, Jan. 2, 1822.
We have been enjoying in this family every delight which affection and cultivated tastes, and cheerful tempers can bestow. Upon nearer acquaintance I find Dr. Lushington worthy of the prize he has obtained in a wife, and I have heard from friends, who differ from him in political opinions, such honourable testimony to his integrity and strength of mind that my heart is quite at ease about her happiness.
- Miss Edgeworth's old friend, Miss Sarah Carr.
