Last Sunday's Asbury Park Press

Don't throw away your Asbury Park Press from last Sunday-there is a Jane gem inside. According to our member Barbara, on page E10 there is a column called Direct Answers ( like a dear abby). Q & A type. In an answer to a question - Jane Austen's P&P was referenced. It stated that Lady Catherine is a laggard whose only accomplishment in life was being born to a wealthy family and compared her to the man in question as living in a fantasy world.

Wouldn't Jane be surprised to be giving answers to a lonely hearts column!

Hi Janeites! Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to comment on our content. Of course, Lady Catherine would believe us all to behave like gentlemen and ladies, so please let us not disappoint her.

Also, please leave comments in English, as only Lady Catherine, had she ever studied a foreign language, would be a great profient enough to read such comments. (Merci! Arigato! Gracias!)
