Beautifull indeed

“She then proceeded to a Pastry-cooks where she devoured six ices, refused to pay for them, knocked down the Pastry Cook and walked away.”

The Beautifull Cassandra
Volume the First of Jane’s Juvenilia

Jane must have been very young when she wrote this!  Actually, what I love about these stories (though I haven’t read many of them) is her already obvious enthusiasm for the ridiculous.  There’s more slapstick humor here than silly school-girl romance.
