6 December 1814 – ?Tuesday – to Caroline Austen

[Note to Jane Austen’s niece, Caroline]

I wish I could finish Stories as fast as you can.– I am much obliged to you for the sight of Olivia, & think you have done for her very well; but the good for nothing Father, who was the real author of all her Faults & Sufferings, should not escape unpunished.– I hope he hung himself, or took the sur-name of Bone or underwent some direful penance or other.–

Yours affecly
J. Austen
