in consequence of the missive, Heavy., penned by Rachel G
1 Weighty; ponderous; tending strongly to the centre.
The first definition would include the idea of being overweight, but it wouldn't necessarily be so. Just being ponderous would qualify. The other definitions certainly seem to address other areas where Mr. Rushworth may be considered "heavy". I am especially drawn to definitions 4 through 9.
In any event, it appears that JA could have meant a variety of things instead of overweight.
(I didn't include items 13 and 14 as they don't apply.)
