Transcribed by G. Dooley from version published by Carr's Musical Repository, Philadelphia. This arrangement has been transposed from the original key of G, and the last beat of bar 22 and all of bar 23 have been transposed down an octave. The original spelling and most of the original punctuation have been retained. The manuscript version in Jane Austen's House Museum (3:22) does not contain the words enclosed in square brackets. Where applicable, the words from Austen's MS are included in curly brackets.
