in consequence of the missive, Chapter 9: Catherine judging for herself., penned by Lynn
I love this quote from your post, Lynn. We see Catherine not only forming her own opinions, but acting on them as well. She is thinking at first that she should do what she is used to doing back home: ask someone to clear up a point of conversation. Then she realizes that Thorpe is probably not capable of this, so she lets it lie. It's a very mature and considerate way to handle the situation, and shows a lot of good sense for someone not used to the ways of Bath society.
Catherine is learning to find her way.
P.S. I think she is also learning that Thorpe does not excel in more ways than one! ;-)
