in consequence of the missive, The Trail of Jane's Aunt, penned by Robbin
I agree, quite an ordeal for a woman of her age and genteel living habits.
I think Janes Leigh-Perrot, a fastidious man, showed great loyalty to his wife to share such filty conditions in prison.
And considering his gouty condition !
It says alot for Aunt Jane's charecter to turn down
Mrs Austen's offer of Jane or Cassandra as a companion to share her miseries.
Possibly, when Mrs Austen made her surpising offer, she thought the warden's house offered better comfort to the
Leigh-Perrots- and was yet to find how awful and cramped conditions were in the Scaddings' house, maybe.
