my own dear heart

letter of proposal from Jessie Corbett to John Wilks

I feel like an egg in a whisk.

(…) I have the ring, that magic circle, also a cosy cottage in a garden of loveliness so just say the word & we will wed.

Reply dearest to Mary Anne, G.P.O. or if you refuse my offer, forfeit in friends name a pair of gloves.
