in consequence of the missive, I see symptoms of desperation in Mrs Elton, penned by Tarn
I have not a fault to find with your description of Miss Hawkins as desperate, but I do wonder whether her dowry was crucial to Mr Elton's being able to afford a carriage. We heard in chapter 4 that he was known to have some independent property, so perhaps he's Wentworthing: not buying a carriage when he's single, because he doesn't need one.
(One of these days, I must try writing an acrostic on Miss Hawkins's name.)
