In this letter, Jane Austen, writes to Crosby & Co. as Mrs. Ashton Dennis (MAD), regarding the MS Susan (later published at Northanger Abbey) which they bought for £10 six years earlier. The author requests immediate publication or else proposes to take the MS elsewhere to be published.
The Mr. Seymour referred to in the letter is William Seymour, Henry Austen's lawyer.
The particular circumstances are that the Austens are packed and ready to leave for a prolonged visit to Godmersham before moving to Chawton.
