Jane's Thoughts Thursday

"I think you must like Udolpho, if you were to read it; it is so very interesting."

"Not I, faith! No, if I read any, it shall be Mrs Radcliffe's; her novels are amusing enough; they are worth reading; some funand nature in them."

"Udolpho was written by Mrs Radcliffe," said Catherine with some hesitation, from the fear of mortifying him.

-Catherine Moreland to John Thorpe

Northanger Abbey, 1818
