in consequence of the missive, Maybe she wrote it for Cassandra's 16th birthday., penned by Reeba
In chapter six of Jane Austen: A Family Recod, it says: "[T]he family trip to Kent in July and August 1788, with its return via London, probably inspired the London setting of 'The Beautifull Cassandra' as well as teasing Cassandra with a description of how she had not behaved whilst there" (63).
Ahh, this is our JA! Her mode of teasing her sister becomes a treasured souvenir, saved and passed on as a family memento. :-)
