Chawton House is technically not Jane Austen's "ancestral home" ("Sandy Lerner, in Your Face," by Renee Tawa, March 1). Austen and her siblings were born at Steventon Rectory, where her father was a poor but gentlemanly rector. Chawton House was part of the Knight family estate. Thomas and Catherine Knight, distant cousins of Austen's father, George, were childless, adopted Austen's brother Edward and made him their heir. Edward acquired the cottage in Chawton village for his widowed mother, Cassandra, and his two spinster sisters, Cassandra and Jane.

NBC's presentation of "Peter the Great" was the equivalent of being invited to a superb gourmet dinner and being served tasteless hash. This was a major show hashed into small pieces and buried in commercials and fillers. Eleanor B. Samuels, La Puente

Even in reruns, Lifetime's "E.N.G." was eminently more watchable and intriguing at 7 p.m. weeknights than its replacements "E.R." and "Duet." Why the "big boys" buried such a good program at midnight, I'll never know! Roxann Lord, Palm Springs

Re "3 BR, 2 BA, plastic saint buried in yard," April 19 It was not more than an hour after reading about people who bury St. Joseph statues to help sell their homes that I was prepping the dirt around the perimeter of the patio of my town house, which I bought in December 2005. As I pushed the shovel into the dirt, I hit something. I thought it was a piece of plastic pipe, but when I pulled it out, it was a small statute of St. Joseph! I guess the previous owners buried him, and it worked on me. I will keep him until I need to sell.
