|So much depends on his motivation

in consequence of the missive, Crawford vs Darcy, penned by Ramya
If Henry Crawford realized that it would upset Fanny for him to dine with her family and refuses only for the sake of her comfort then it was a kindness. If he refused for other reasons then he gets no credit for its actually being a blessing. I tend to doubt he discerned Fanny’s feelings and acted for her comfort. He doesn’t really seem to me to read her well most of the time.
This is a bit off topic but I wonder if pre-reform Darcy notices how often Lizzy is embarrassed by her mother or other members of her family.
