Hidden Handwritten Text by Jane Austen
The Guardian

Jane Austen's Handwriting

A piece of paper of 5 inches in length by 1 inch in height in which Jane Austen wrote what seems to be a copy of sermon from her brother, is being scrutinized by scholars, as it seems to have imprints of a different text on the back. Connoisseurs say it's possible is a continuation of the text on the front... But everyone seems to hope to the contrary.
According to the article, the piece of paper was  discovered in a first edition of The Memoirs of Jane Austen, recently purchased by the Jane Austen's House Museum at Chawton.

The snippet shows Austen writing that: "Men may get into a habit of repeating the words of our Prayers by rote, perhaps without thoroughly understanding – certainly without thoroughly feeling their full force & meaning," This was a subject she contemplated in her own novel Mansfield Park, which was published in 1814.

The book and the snippet will be featured in an exhibition at Jane Austen's House Museum later this year to celebrate the bicentenary of Mansfield Park.
