In response to Propriety, etc., written by The Mysterious H.C. on February 13, 1998 at 03:55:13
HC, I read your link on propriety and I came across this:
"In Jane Austen's very first surviving letter (January 9, 1796), she makes fun of herself for having somewhat violated etiquette, by being "particular" in this way with her "Irish friend" Tom Lefroy:"
Perhaps she had this young man in mind when Lady D talks about W's air.
