in consequence of the missive, Generosity does not need to be tied to rank, penned by Ramya
It would have been presumptuous for Jane, the poorer girl to have attempted to push for friendship with Emma the rich girl, and Emma might even have disliked her more for her "presumption" than for her "reserve" e.g. Emma might say to herself -- "how presumptious that Jane Fairfax is, because she is so idolized by her aunt and grandmother, she thinks she can push her way anywhere including at Hartfield"! (See how often the word "pesumption" occurs in Emmaa's anger to Mr Elton's proposal, and Mr Elton was also a gentleman, and it was only later, esepcially after his marriage, that his more unpleasant traits become obvious).
