Jane Austen Quote of the Day

My dear Caroline

I wish I could finish Stories as fast as you can.—I am much obliges to you for the sight of Olivia, & think you have done for her very well; but the good for nothing Father, who was the real author of all her Faults & Sufferings, should not escape unpunished.—I hope he hung himself, . . . or underwent some direful penance or other.—

Almost the whole of a letter to Caroline Austen, 6 December, 1814
