in consequence of the missive, Looks can be Deceiving, penned by Robbin
casts a pall on the said merriment, it does suggest that something is amiss. I'm sure all the gold-paper wasting did not take place when Sir Thomas was present. It is not merely Fanny, but his daughters too feel Sir Thomas' presence oppressive. It is even possible that he was more severe on his daughters than on his sons just because he was with them more. Edmund and Tom went to Eton, and then to College (Edmund at least did).
Sir Thomas may love his children, but they were never made to feel so by a kind demeanor, and not merely by asking them to recite Shakespeare. ;-) His grave deportment and harsh words have turned most of his children away from him. Selfish as most of the Bertram children are, I can understand why they do not love their father.
