in consequence of the missive, Emma and Harriet, penned by Anne-Marie
This is Emma's response to Harriet's,
"...while I visit at Hartfield, and you are so kind to me, Miss Woodhouse, I am not afraid of what any body can do."
I fear Harriet has her own little project.
Description of Harriet's character is interesting.
In between there are these conversational indications. Even the ON comes in to make a statement like the timw Robert didn't buy the book he was supposed to;
"I wonder he did not remember the book" -- was all Harriet's answer, and spoken with a degree of grave displeasure which Emma thought might be safely left to itself.
This statement of course pleased Emma, but to a reader this is hardly the sweet, innocent etc character which Emma has painted of her, and definitely not a dog on a leash to be led against her will.
