in consequence of the missive, Thanks :-D, penned by Heather L
We are given an insight into how Catherine reacts to advice in Ch 13;
“Dear madam,” cried Catherine, “then why did not you tell me so before? I am sure if I had known it to be improper, I would not have gone with Mr. Thorpe at all; but I always hoped you would tell me, if you thought I was doing wrong.”
I like how Mrs. Allen seems to be so understanding about 'young people' here, when she says;
“Young people do not like to be always thwarted.”
Of course she seems to have got this idea because Catherine bought the muslin Mrs. Allen had adviced her not to ;-)
And Catherine then says,
She has added the clause about not being hard to persuade, because of JT, though.
So I think if forced to read that essay, she would have at least told her mother that 'this' is not her problem, but that she can't really tell her the real problem, or something of that sort - I think :-)
