in consequence of the missive, Letter 16 : Frank is made!, penned by JulieW
The tone of Jane's letter is both gleeful and confident as she reports the news of Frank's promotion to Commander and her pen happily flows on to news of Charles...
The enthusiasm shown in Letter 16 reminded me of her words from 1791;
JA, 'History of England'.
Years after JA's death Sir Francis Austen lived up to his sister's youthful expectations to became Lord Admiral of the Fleet.
And how happy she'd be for close family friend Martha Lloyd who married Francis... now I'm jumping far ahead !
