in consequence of the missive, Was delighted to see, penned by Stephanie
It is true that Mr. Knightley sees through Emma more clearly than anyone else, and is not one of those who spoil her. However, it does not sit well with me that he would write such a prescription for Emma's cure.
The fact that he would go find Mrs. Weston to discuss the matter of Emma's friendship with Harriet speaks of his concern. However, as Mrs. Weston said, Emma is "accountable to nobody but her father" (Ch. 5). He would have done better to speak to Emma directly. I am glad that Mrs. Weston was able to dissuade him from involving the John Knightleys as well. It smacks a little too much of interference. What do others think?
