in consequence of the missive, Augusta and her clergyman, penned by Lisa Dalrymple
I may have read too much into the attitudes of people towards the clergy reflecting their characters. I re-read chapter 33 and Mrs. E's character is described pretty well there. She seems to believe she is on the same level socially as Emma and wants to be her BFF (haha). Emma's offputting attitude as well as unkind remarks made by Mr. E, I have no doubt, have made her turn to competition with Emma to be the leader of society. She is a fun character to read (my favorite kind), and makes Emma, even with her faults, look wonderful in comparison. I still think that Mrs. E is basically a good person, and she is one of those women who could be improved with the right husband - but unfortunately she chose a man who will not improve her at all, and she will certainly not improve him.
