in consequence of the missive, Well, during the walk,, penned by MandyN
I agree, this part shows how Eleanor is well used to contending against Henry's wit. There is another part later in the same walk, where she is trying to get him to talk more respectfully of women. "That is not good enough. Be more serious." Henry lets himself be ordered around by her, in a sense.
Does anyone else get a feeling of guilt every time they use the word 'nice' in a context that wouldn't suit Henry Tilney's ideals?
