…as it is a great secret, & only known to half the Neighbourhood, you must not mention it

Another letter from  1796 as Jane Austen continues her visit in Kent, staying at Rowling.  Come find out for yourself what the “great secret” may be — you don’t want to fall in with the half of the Neighbourhood in the dark! —  and catch up on visits and visitors, dances and dinners!

5th September 1796
