in consequence of the missive, Jane Austen and the navy, penned by Rae
My impression (rightly or wrongly) is JA biographers focus more on Jane's older brothers; so I'm pleased B. Southam was able to make use of the letters of Frank and Charles to trace their navy careers.
Jane Austen and the Navy does sound a worthwhile companion book. Thanks so much for this commentary, Rae. I've just bought a copy of this book. :-)
Think I can lay my hands directly lay my hands on a second-hand copy of Nelson's Navy or can access this link again.
