in consequence of the missive, The island..., penned by MarianneR
My impression is Mrs Craven invited Frank's wife, Mary to join her on holiday, probably on the Isle of Wright - and Jane's mother may also go... 'I have been kindly pressed to stay longer here, in consequence of an offer of Henry's to take me back... in September.' Again, Jane is dependent on a brother for travel, but can stay at Godmersham a few months.
* Frank Austen had rented the house in Castle Square with a view across Southampton Waters of the Isle of Wright.
