“There were twenty Dances & I danced them all, & without any fatigue.- I was glad to find myself capable of dancing so much & with so much satisfaction as I did;- from my slender enjoyment of the Ashford Balls, (as Assemblies for dancing) I had not thought myself equal to it, but in cold weather & with few couples I fancy I could just as well dance for a week together as for half an hour”

~ Jane Austen to her sister 1798
