in consequence of the missive, It's an example of why it's my favorite Austen novel, penned by Laraine
Frank comes to Harriet's defense when "attacked" by the vagabonds, Mr. K comes to Miss Bates's defense when attacked by Emma. Two defenseless women facing a much greater force. I never thought about these being mirrored events until you pointed out the doubled themes, Laraine, but I wonder if this might fit within your understanding of how JA crafted the novel.
Thanks for the thought-provoking,
