in consequence of the missive, We respect your pheasants, sir, penned by Robbin
I agree that Sir T's children dont' show him any great respect or affection, but I can't help feeling that at least some of it is his own fault. He seems to me a man caught between a sense of what is right and a sense of what is socially right.. He takes Fanny in and MEANS to do the right thing by her, to treat her as a gentlewoman and if not hte equal of his own children to be on something of a footing with them.. but it seems that once she's in hte house while he does try at times to show her some regard he very easily leaves her to become a "poor relation".. He does not know It sseems what Mrs Norris is truly like but isn't that a fault in him? He frightens his children so that they dont have much affection for him, nad only behave well "in his sight" out of fear.
