in consequence of the missive, Hmmmmm, well..., penned by BarbaraB
By calling it 'gentle' selfishness I think the author is trying to say that we have not to judge him for *his kind of* selfishness which is neither here nor there anyway.
I think if it was meant to be a serious offence on his part the author would never have come up with the hilarious poultry episode.
Things could have been worse. Emma could have had a gambler, drunkard father who squandered his money away.
No one has a perfect situation, so I don't really mind, in fact I love Mr Woodhouse.
