in consequence of the missive, I recommended him to read Corinna, penned by Myretta
I find that an interesting remark.
If I recall correctly, Dierdre Le Faye in her bigoraphy of Jane Austen, says JA may've known a form of sign langage to communicate alittle with her brother George who aparently, did not speak.
I think this is the first direct reference I've seen of Jane mentioning 'talking with her fingers'. :)
