The idea of sickness as an extension of one's internal concerns does appear to make sense.
Personally, I think Mrs Elton is taking the excuse to be nosy about Jane's concerns-rather than truly concerned for a friend. The indelible Mrs E maybe right to offer to get her man to collect Jane's letters so she can avoid the rain and to find Jane a postion so she doesn't need to adverstise,- but Mrs E is too insistent in her offers, I think and tries to ignore Jane's refusual and causes Jane more stress and anxiety.
What about the effects of external circumstances on a body ?
