• 1842-48 | unpublished travel memoirs | JANE AUSTEN connection | india and russia

    The Terry daughters Jane and Eliza married respectively Harry Digweed and Charles Harwood, so they could be said to fulfil the ‘Emma’ plot situation. Like the plot of an Austen novel, the two families, the Terrys and Austens, are inexorably and inevitably intertwined, as Jane, herself, put it in a letter of 9-18 September 1814 to her young niece, Anna Austen: “You are now collecting your people delightfully, getting them exactly into such a spot as is the delight of my life; 3 or 4 Families in a Country Village is the very thing to work on.”.
