in consequence of the missive, Miss Bates!!! Miss Bates!!! Miss Bates!!!! :-), penned by Reeba
I dont think that there's any doubt that Emma does honour her obligations to hte "really poor", by visiting and sending food etc. and Mr K does not bring it up becuase he knows that seh does the right thing for these people. I also think that hse's perfeclty good on doing things like sending food ot the Bateses which is of course a delicate thing.. Otherwise it woudl look like charity. but I cnat see any reason why she's accused of not doing the pracitcal thing of sending them food when she can do so wihtout looking like she's "coming the Lady Bountiful". She sends the hindquarter of pork, and she invites them to supper often and gives them pletny to eat.
