The lightness, almost friskiness, of their tone cannot fail to strike the reader. Modern letters written by women are filled more or less with hints and queries- questionings as to the why and the wherefore occur- allusions to the various fads of the day, literary or artistic,-Ibsen, Tolstoi, Browning, Esoteric Buddhism, Wagners Music, the Mind Cure, Social Science, Causes and Reforms. But Cowper and Crabbe were the poetical sensations in Miss Austens time, Scott and Byron its phenomenal novelties- it took months to get most books printed, and years to persuade anybody to read them.

Furthermore the letters, in all probability, are carefully chosen to reveal only the more superficial side of their writer.
