|I can envision a bit of that conversation

in consequence of the missive, I see your point, penned by Nicki
Mr. Woodhouse: "I believe that wedding cake is far too rich to be considered wholesome. Do not you agree, Mr. Perry?
Mr. Perry: Well, Mr. Woodhouse, I would not call it unwholesome. Festive occasions are oftentimes made more festive by such nicities. However, as with most rich foods, I would say that moderation is always a sensible precaution.
Mr. Woodhouse: Wedding cake very much disagrees with me, sir. Do you believe that it could do anything less than disagree with people in general?
Mr. Perry: It might certainly disagree with more people than yourself, sir, even if there are those to whom it might be considered to do no harm. I would never suggest that it be taken by anyone with whom it disagrees, such as yourself.
Mr. Woodhouse: Just so, sir. I wonder that Miss Taylor thinks it necessary to have it at all.
(And this becomes, for Mr. Woodhouse, Mr. Perry's decided disapprobation for wedding cake.)
