in consequence of the missive, You are absolutely right!, penned by Rachel G
I think Mary's response to Fanny's not thinking well of Henry, is indicative of why Fanny thinks she has a mind darkened, yet fancying itself light.
his fault, the liking to make girls a little in love with him, is not half so dangerous to a wife’s happiness as a tendency to fall in love himself,
Mary clearly doesn't understand her company, with the London conquest remark. True love doesn't have vanity puffed up by such superficial cares. This returns us to what Lisa D said earlier about characters assuming other people think just like them. It's very evident from Mary's letter that she expects Fanny to think like her, and has ignored those earlier hints from Fanny that she doesn't.
