] Here's the references to chocolate and cocoa in Jane Austen (that I have): Thanks, O mysterious one. You always come up trumps!
] "Mr. Watts would not agree to this, and for some time insisted upon its being a Chocolate colour, while Mary was as eager for having it blue with silver Spots. At length, however, Sophy proposed that to please Mr. W. it should be a dark brown, and to please Mary it should be hung rather high and have a silver Border. This was at length agreed to, tho' reluctantly on both sides, as each had intended to carry their point entire."
Now you've given me ANOTHER vision! of a chocohlic Jane carrying out her wishful thinking by inventing chocolate coaches.......:-)
