in consequence of the missive, Class and Marriage, penned by Jane Marie
I think there is a lot we miss by way of humor and ridicule from the writer about the time. Sometimes you read explanations of this and that about it (like Emma's not saying just plain Knightley even though Bingley is called Bingley with no Mr a generation earlier). We must miss a lot that Jane would be surprised about!
When it comes to Elton and Emma, if she fell in love with him the match would be just fine. But her objection is that he is after her money. He is a gentleman and has a little money but not a good situation (why he eats with the Coles so much) and he would be the winner because of her dowry.
