Jane Austen : Pride and Prejudice

'I cannot help the oozing forth of my Io triumphe?although it is by no means my dearest friend, my turn for writing. Mr Kenyon came yesterday - & he had just been reading, he said, "Pride & Prejudice", ?driven into making an acquaintance with Miss Austen in despite of his anti-novelism, by the buzz of admiration which beset him from Mr Harness, and others. Mind, he was quite unaware of your & my ever quarrelling on the subject: he spoke to me of his impressions therefore quite innocently & freely, not knowing but that I might be wearing out the knees of my soul before her statue.'
