in consequence of the missive, Letter 79, penned by Myretta
I think this letter really conveys Jane's truimph and excitment at receiving a copy of Pride and Prejudice from her publisher in London.
Penelope Hughes-Hallet in 'Letters to Casandra' (Collins &Brown. 1990) comments at the time, Jane Austen was anxious to preserve her incognito and therefore pleased the title page said 'By the Author of Sense and Sensibility'.
