in consequence of the missive, Letter 37: JA's black cap, penned by Line
As for scandalizing Mrs. Busby's nephew, earlier in the letter she had indicated that she was prevented from setting her cap at him (i.e., vying for his attentions and affections) "by his having a wife & ten Children." So after meeting him she stands corrected - he only has three. More of JA's wit.
