in consequence of the missive, I agree that the Woodhouse's would have to have, penned by AnnetteJ
She was the youngest of the two daughters of a most affectionate, indulgent father, and had, in consequence of her sister's marriage, been mistress of his house from a very early period. (Chapter 1)
There seems to be very little drama about household servants, and one likes to assume that working for the Woodhouses was a pleasant job for that time period. The only time I remember there being "servant trouble" in Austen's books is in Fanny's mother's maid, Rebecca, who seems a bad cook and servant all around.
