The Watsons: By Jane Austen, Concluded by L. Oulton [1923] by Jane Austen and L. Oulton

Hello!

I'd love to see someone tackle this very interesting continuation of the fragment titled "The Watsons" by Jane Austen. It will be approximately six hours when completed.

Here is the online text.

Thank you!

Re: [NOVEL] The Younger Sister by Catherine Anne Hubback -jo

No bother at all! Thanks for listening! I'm so sorry, I seem to have a recurring accent thing where I speak too fast in these sentences, I actually do say 'he' but I can understand how it might be heard as 'she'.
