(Rev. George Austen) Steventon: December 17, 1775.
DEAR SISTER,--You have doubtless been for some time in expectation of hearing from Hampshire, and perhaps wondered a little we were in our old age grown such bad reckoners, but so it was, for Cassy certainly expected to have been brought to bed a month ago; however, last night the time came, and without a great deal of warning, everything was soon happily over. We have now another girl, a present plaything for her sister Cassy, and a future companion. She is to be Jenny, and seems to me as if she would be as like Harry as Cassy is to Neddy. Your sister, thank God, is pure well after it.
December 16 is my reserved day every year for simping about Jane Austen. So, here goes a hodgepodge of Jane Austen quizzes. A lot of these tests come from ProProfs. The first two tests are simple Which Character Are You tests out of all booksne for Jane Austen heroines and another for heroes (which is rare). There's actually a page that explains the results. Heroines are classified as being: practical/romantic, introvert/extrovert, sincere/witty, or progressive/traditional. Heroes are classified as being: practical/romantic, introvert/extrovert, and sincere/calculating.
From Rum&Monkey a Which Jane Austen Heroine Are You quiz. From ZOO: 1) Which Jane Austen Hero Is Your Soulmate? 2) Which Jane Austen Couple Are You and Your (Kephalos: possibly imaginary) Significant Other? 3) What Is Your Jane Austen Name? (Jane Austen picked the names of her characters very carefully) 4) . Piling on the Austenmania: some stuff from Sparknotes, another heroine test and a secondary heroine test.
Some quizzes from the individual books: 1) Which Bennet Sister are you? 2) From Emma 3) Another Emma 4) Sense and Sensibility 5) Mansfield Park (this one has the most interesting characters, I think) 6) Mansfield Park again.
Finally, some Jane Austen related links: Is this woman Jane Austen? This scholar says yes. I'm not qualified to answer, but the newly discovered portrait has a family resemblance to Jane Austen's brothers. There's only one portrait of Jane Austen that is sure to have been done while she was still alive; the most famous portrait of her, which was later given a niptuck by the Bank of England, was made decades later to affix to an edition of her novels.
