1. This letter was written on more than one day, since there is an earlier letter of the same day, preceding, and yet at the end AA says that “Breakfast waits.” Moreover, AA says in her letter of the 17th, below, that she “wrote” (i.e. sent?) JA “two Letters yesterday,” and so probably the present letter was actually written on 15–16 Aug. and sent by post on Friday the 16th.
