Jane Austen Quote of the Day

He [brother Edward] made an important purchase Yesterday; no less so than a pair of Coach Horses; his friend Mr Evelyn found them out & recommended them, & if the judgement of a Yahoo can ever be depended on, I suppose it may now, for I believe Mr Evelyn has all his life thought more of Horses than of anything else.

Letter to Cassandra at Steventon from the Leigh-Perrot home in Bath, June 19, 1799
