in consequence of the missive, Re: Who was Martha Lloyd ?, penned by Leif G-n
I can see why she would appeal to Jane, if she was bookish. I can understand, too, that she wouldn't want to go public on her relationship with Jane later in life, when the Knights and the Austens were so carefullly re-creating her image, either.
I just have the impression of her as having a great sense of humour- though for the life of me I cannot tell you why. And what stories she could have told about the Austens, if she had been inclined!
