1799: Jane Austen's aunt is accused of shoplifting from a shop in Bath.
By Jenny Howarth.
Cassandra Austen narrates the shocking story of her aunt's arrest and imprisonment for stealing a piece of lace, a story which reveals Georgian Bath to be a far less decorous place than it appears in her sister Jane's novels.
