in consequence of the missive, Letter 65 (Brabourne 52), penned by Myretta
In this letter JA says that "he runs after her in the street to apologise for having spoken to a gentleman while she was near him the day before", so I assume that Martha was angry with him because he slighted her; and in the next letter, Jane writes that she wishes Martha happy and that "as Dr. M. is a clergyman, their attachment, however immoral, has a decorous air".
