Evidence

[Maria Branwell to her fiance, the Rev. Patrick Bronte, 5 December 1812:] "Since I began this [letter] Jane put into my hands Lord Lyttleton"s Advice to a Lady. When I read those lines, ""Be never cool reserve with passion joined, with caution choose, but then be fondly kind, etc.,"" my heart smote me for having in some cases used too much reserve towards you. Do you think you have any cause to complain of me? If you do, let me know it. For were it in my power to prevent it, I would in no instance occasion you the least pain or uneasiness. I am certain no one ever loved you with an affection more pure, constant, tender, and ardent than that which I feel [...] I long to improve in every religious and moral quality, that I may be a help, and if possible an ornament to you. Oh let us pray for much wisdom and grace to fill our appointed stations with propriety, that we may enjoy satisfaction in our own souls, edify others, and bring glory to the name of Him who has so wonderfully preserved, blessed and brought us together."
