This occasion was recalled by William Heathcote, the son of Elizabeth Heathcote (nee Briggs) who had returned to the family home with her son.
Many years later he:
“remembered being at a Twelfth-Night Party where Jane Austen drew the character of Mrs Candour and assumed the part with great spirit”.
(Jane Austen: A family Record, Le Faye.)
Mrs Candour was a part in Sheriden' s The School for Scandal and , by coincidence,was made famous by one of Henry Austen's neighbours in London-Jane Pope.
