First the glasses (ignoring the blinds for the moment):
Now the blinds:
Also why, when it rains, are the blinds not to be put down until the family are just going to get in? Is it to preserve the blinds from being damaged by rain entering through the partly open windows? If so, it would seem more helpful to instruct the footman to keep the glasses up (closed), so that rain could not come in and make the seats wet.
It is all very confusing. I am probably being obtuse or missing something vital (my wits?). Sitting in a Regency carriage for thirty seconds would undoubtedly make it all clear.
Does this question more properly belong at L&T?
