in consequence of the missive, Ah, yes., penned by Tarn
I had never thought of it that way. I was almost as ready to forgive Jane Fairfax as Emma was. My feelings were in pity for Jane for happening to fall in love with a man who is too weak to stand up to his aunt and openly proclaim his love.
But now you mention it, I must agree that there is such a possibility. Jane Fairfax did not have very good prospects. She could gain materially by marrying Frank - and would therefore gain by entering into the engagement secretly, as a disinherited Frank will not bring so much material gain. I hope, however that it was rather her affection for Frank that made her go against her better knowledge rather than material considerations. :)
Thanks, that made me think twice about Jane Fairfax!
