in consequence of the missive, Giving or Selling Church Livings, penned by Robbin
I had read those very posts when I made mine. ;-) Fanny may not be aware of the details of the sale, or JA may have chosen not to go into her reaction. Sir Thomas does not seem to have had scruples for religious reasons, but then, neither does he when Maria overrides his concerns about her marriage to Mr. Rushworth.
Sir Thomas does have good principles, but he hasn't always been acting by them consistently. He is a very human mixture of both good and bad, but legitimate concerns such as concern for his family honor and financial position prove to be his Achilles heel. He also appears to have a slight tendency towards vanity, as he has been so amenable to flattery from Mrs. Nasty, especially pre-Antigua. At least, this is my take on Sir Thomas... ;-)
