in consequence of the missive, Do these words seem familiar to you?, penned by JulieW
Jane Austen did say she wrote only what she saw and knew.
And 'they' were talking of an amount much lessser than the amount Fanny Dashwood thought would be enough for the Dashwood women.
Should Fanny's assumptions about the comfort of the Dashwood women on an income far above the Austen women not sound so bad after all? I wonder.
Of course the Dashwoods lived better, on an income of £4000 a year, so their *fall* was one from a higher point.
