in consequence of the missive, You're right, he's just plain rude, penned by Pennie
I agree Thorpe's behaviour is detestably rude and flashy. I feel quite sorry for Catherine enduring that carriage drive with him.
From the moment Catherine meets John Thorpe, I think he adds a 'gothic' element to her experiences in Bath.
Catherine's experiences in Bath appear to be a combination of what might be expected for the normal girl and those of the Gothic heroine.
* John sneers at 'Camilla' (by one of JA's favourite author's, Fanny Burney). The incident of an old man on a see saw occurs very early in the book indicating John's lack of reading ability.
