|romantic delicacy was certainly not to be expected from him

in consequence of the missive, Well said Jeffrey., penned by Barb JA
Sir Thomas does not invite confidences. Fanny likely thinks that he would not believe her about last summer, as little as he knows his daughters, and as he is currently calling Fanny unattractively independent, ungrateful, disgustingly selfish, and foolishly short-sighted.
Fanny is doing her duty, but I think it would be much harder for her, being who she is, to blurt out the ugly truth at that moment. I think she should have said earlier that she had reason to doubt Mr. Crawford's morals, despite fearing to be asked any details. Sir Thomas would then not be accusing her of waiting for some romantic, imaginary, unlikely 'grand passion' before considering marriage, which seems to be his charge against her now.
