|[I] did not forget to think of it seriously

in consequence of the missive, Whose heart?, penned by Myretta
The original quote is about Fanny, of course, but I altered it to be about myself - in this case, someone looking at the traits of three men in decidedly different circumstances. Next time, I shall first-person-alize the pronouns.
However, the purport of my post is mistaken, as others have pointed out. Edmund is NOT middle class, despite having to 'work for a living;' neither is William lower class, being neither a servant, nor a tenant farmer (are there other professions of lower class? I am woefully uninformed here). The others are right, and I retract.
Perhaps, however, I could advance the position as Henry: well-to-do, Edmund: comfortably-off, and William: poor, all of them members of the Regency-gentleman's class?
Pity all my spam-filter questions so far have been about P&P. Will any be about MP?
