On December 6 1814, Jane Austen writes to Caroline Austen. Only a fragment of the letter survives.
My dear Caroline – I wish I could finish Stories as fast as you can. — I am much obliged 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 took the sur-name of Bone or underwent some direful penance or other. — Yours affec J. Austen
