in consequence of the missive, I agree, penned by Line
How Jane could remain close friends with Anne Lefroy has confused me as well.
(A little Miss Bingley/Darcy seperating Jane and Bingley in P&P ?)
However, according to my edition, after Mrs Lefroy's sudden death, Jane remained long inconsolable for her.
_'My Dear Cassandra'
This is JA's only serious poem. Perhaps it is also a tribute to Jane as well. Clearly, she continued to cherish her close relationship with Mrs Lefroy --as Anne Elliot did with Lady Russell.
*I don't know if Cassandra's letters shed any further light on Jane's and Mrs Lefroy's friendship.
