Jane Austen Quote of the Day

My dearest Caroline

I have been very much entertained by your story of Carolina & her aged Father, it made me laugh heartily, & I am particularly glad to find you so much alive upon any topic of such absurdity, as the usual description of a Heroine's father.—You have done it full justice—

Letter to Caroline Austen, 15 July 1815
