Love Letter 2

THOUGH it is not fitting for a
gentleman to take his lady in
the place of a servant, yet, complying
with your desire, I willingly grant it
you, if thereby you can find yourself
less uncomfortable in the place chosen
by yourself, than you have been in
that which I gave you, thanking you
cordially that you are pleased still to
have some remembrance of me. 6, n.
A. I de A. b. na. v. e. z. [or 6.n.A.I de A.o.na.v.e.z]

    Any idea what the letters at the bottom mean?

    No, I think it was probably a cipher that Anne would have understood though.

    I am obsessed. The code surely must have beed deciphered by someone, as it cannot possibly be that difficult. Given the context of the letter, there should be enough of a reference point, combined with, from what I’ve read, they communicated in either English or French…

    I’m gonna plug in the letters on my smart phone and list all the possibilites and just amuse myself with that. No I’m not, I forbid myself to spend that kind of time on such a pursuit! :)
