The Watsons

Austen's abandoned work (published in 1923) was likely composed between 1803-1805 before she left Bath, perhaps a disappointing dress rehearsal ahead of her next composition, Sense and Sensibility. This story's protagonist might have started at too low of a station for Austen's liking, as J.E. Austen Leigh explains in its preface.
