in consequence of the missive, GR: Mr. Collins' proposal, penned by Cheryl
There was a puzzling sentence in the book (ch. 2): "Moralists deplored the pretender who tried to secure prior assurances of love before he made his offer--a cynical policy, aimed, it was said, at circumventing the woman's right to refuse." Is this why we see these proposals coming out of the blue? (I'm so confused...) But perhaps Mr. Collins has cleared it up for me. ;-)
