Tomalin bio---don' you wonder...?

Of course we will never know, but as I read this biography and the frequent mentions made of the efficacy of Cassandra's scissors after Jane's death, I am just burning with curiosity at what, what?? might have been in her letters that her sister felt necessary to destroy?? The surviving letters do have biting commentary about acquaintances and events, so one can only assume that the letters which were destroyed must have had more pointed comments, possibly more about members of the closer family circle??? I feel such a sense of loss that all of this was destroyed and that much of JA's life remains such an enigma.
