in consequence of the missive, Manner & Countenance, penned by Robbin
That disclaimer was badly done IMO. Even if Mary really had no intention of making a smutty joke,it shows that she has the sort of mind to register instantly that what she said could be interpreted in an indelicate manner. As it is, her disclaimer would have anyone within earshot who had not picked up the 'double entendre' thinking: "Pun? What pun? Oh I see!"
If you are correct and Edmund didn't interpret what Mary said in the worst light, then why does the next sentence begin:
I've quoted the relevant paragraph in the first post in this thread, so I won't repeat it. What is in that paragraph to make him feel gave if it isn't the pun? Is it the snobbery, or what?
