in consequence of the missive, Advice for the lovelorn, penned by Shirley Rae
Emma's penance is severe but the punishment fits the crime.
She freely chose to destroy Harriet's natural attachment to a worthy man who loves her sincerely, & to create an attachment in her to a person her own fancy found more suitable by pretense & willful blindness. It is her responsibility as a human to restore what she stole, & to suck up the frustration of the process being a slow one.
I grant anyone's arguments that Emma is young & that at her age I was equally disinclined to long hours visiting people who made good natured nonstop verbal assults on my senses & understanding, & to dislike people who did everything better than I did, but that's not the point. Emma's position of power in the relationship & the community and her understanding of & readiness to use that position in her dealings with others, & to hurt feelings when she considers it appropriate, gives her the responsibility to deal benevolently & wisely, or avoid interference.
