Pride and Prejudice author Jane Austen wrote us a very elegant note delivered in a ghostly (but very proper) fashion. She wanted to wish us happy birthday (we’re 10!)

“From the very beginning— from the first moment, I may almost say — of my acquaintance with Australian Writers’ Centre, your manners, impressing me with the fullest belief of your confidence, your courses, and your step by step learning methods, were such as to form the groundwork on which succeeding events have built so immovable an admiration; and I had not known five weeks before that I could ever be prevailed on to marry sentences like I do now.

“In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love your courses.”

Jane Austen
