(Will the Janeites be furious?)



27 December 1796

Dearest Jane,

Please understand (and forgive) and understand my need to write on this page of your notebook, but it was most urgent. Mother has just now, without warning, sent me packing, back to the village to live with the Littleworths. No doubt she has her justifications, but rest assured I did nothing to deserve this treatment. I do not intend to remain in Deane, there is nothing in that cheerless clutter of hovels for me. I will write you from Portsmouth once I have acquired a position. Perhaps you can use this in your story, it would be comforting to know my misfortune might be of literary value.

Yours very affectionately,
