Today’s letter is yet another poem, this one being sent to Jane Austen’s brother Frank on the occasion of the birth of his son.  Most of it is taken up with that subject – a hope for the child and an appreciation of the father in one – with a short remark towards the end of the anticipated move to Chawton by the Austen ladies.
