Many happy returns to you, Charlotte. I’m glad you didn’t die of tuberculosis at boarding school, and I’m glad you gave Jane Eyre a happy(ish) ending, especially when you didn’t do so with Villette. (Although I understand why you didn’t, given the events that inspired that one.) I just wanted you to know that I’ve been reading Jane Eyre for about twenty years now, and that I think you (and your sisters) were pretty revolutionary. Happy birthday!
