Left complete but unpublished and without title at the author's death.
Written on 79 leaves, 2 of them bearing the date 1805 in the watermark.
Watermark: At least three watermarks. On multiple pages, fragments of a crowned triple circle, possibly Britannica; "SHARP" and "1805".
Being a fair copy in the author's hand, written on the rectos and versos of 79 leaves; with a dedication, most likely in Austen's hand, "For / Lady Knatchbull."
