I agree it's not as much fun as Miss Bates. At least Miss Bates has lots of news in her chatter, but Mrs Elton is repetitive.
>she likes to have her little opportunities to snub people,
She wanted to snub the Coles', but finally didn't.
I can't recall anyone who she snubbed. She conducts herself quite graciously even when provoked, I think. I'd be enilightened to be shown any instance of a snub by her.
