in consequence of the missive, Emma and her father, penned by Laraine
There seems to be an air of self-indulgence about both of them though, at least for now, I find them rather likeable. Whether Mr. Woodhouse's self-indulgence proves to be harmful or not remains to be seen. Not so with Emma, IMOH. She is busy meddling in the affairs of Harriet which would be better left alone. Marriage was a serious business at this time and Harriet's wonderful offer by the respectable, well-thought-of Mr. Martin should not have been so carelessly tossed aside in my opinion, certainly not so precipitously. I feel that influencing someone---especially of Harriet's naieve, worshipful nature---for personal means is not only self-indulgent on Emma's part but reckless in my opinion.
