in consequence of the missive, GR: Chapter 7 Private theatricals, penned by Deborah Julia
Thanks for bringing out this point, Deborah Julia. I found it interesting that private theatricals were a topic within several novels of the era (p. 235 footnote 30). I may have to look into some of the other works mentioned so I can better understand what goes on in Mansfield Park.
And I liked the idea of Mrs. Norris playacting -- I am quite sure she could not restrict herself to two and forty speeches!
