in consequence of the missive, He didn't say yes, penned by CarolTS
...in James' letter in ch.25 is that despite his severe disappointment in Isabella, he can still write at the end that "[he] can never expect to know such another woman!". This is consistent with JA's other novels where those disappointed in love still think well of their ex-partners, and feel better for doing so, while today IMO we would expect someone who had recently broken up to make themselves feel better by going over all their ex-partner's faults.
