in consequence of the missive, treatment of servants, penned by Nikki N
One of my favorite quotes from the Harry Potter series goes something like "If you want to know a man's character, look at how he treats his inferiors". As much as we have a running gag about invisible servants, we do get a few looks at master-servants relations-you've already pointed out a few, but I also recall how Mrs. Norris would be supercilious with Baddeley in Mansfield Park. (And his smirk when she was thwarted-I love that part!)
