"I have only to add my dear Sophia, that my Henry's elder Brother

myself, and as we had always loved each other in idea from the
high Character in which we had ever been spoken of, though we had
never met, we determined to live together. We wrote to one
another on the same subject by the same post, so exactly did our

proposals we gave and received of becoming one family, and have
from that time lived together in the greatest affection."
"And is this all? said I, I hope you have not done."
