Sense and sensibility

Am so sorry for being away for so long but I was a little too busy with my dictionary trying to figure out the meanong of most of the word and expressions in this book. Not that I was suprised thoygh, being an old book and all. I now know the meaning of words like curricle, coxcomb, banditti, hartshorn, michaelmas and huswifes (find out the meanings for yourselves).
 Though, teo things still puzzle me, I have searched the internet but I still cant find out why they put a lock of hair on their engagement rings or the the origin of this practise. Do you know anything about it? Kindly share it with me and may God bless you. Secondly, on page 276, Lucy addresses her letter as C. And C. I still dont know why.
