A few short little piece can be found in Vol. II under the heading of "Scraps." They were written in 1793 (when Jane was 17) and dedicated to her newly born niece Anna. It's an odd little collection, among which are letters from
a girl who describes her friend (the letter receiver) as "a very pleasant Girl, yet sometimes her good humour is clouded by Peevishness, Envy, & Spite."
another girl who unrepentently confesses to, among other things, killing her parents, lying, stealing, forging wills, being a purjurer, changing her religion. She ends the letter with "I am now going to murder my Sister. Yours Ever. Anna Parker."
and letter about a tour through Wales in which our letter writer's mother travelled by horseback and the writer and her sister were obliged to run alongside. "You may be sure that we were in a fine perspiration when we came to our place of resting."
Did anyone else read these? What did you think? My favorite was the deliciously wicked sociopath. ;-)
