in consequence of the missive, The Gardiners' Children, penned by Cheryl
Mr. and Mrs. G, are probably acting like parents with means often did. Raised by nanny's and or helped by maids children during Austenís time were rarely allowed to mingle with adults. For a society that believed in nurse maids, is it really a shock that the children were kept in the background during an occasion the adults wanted a visit? I don't think it's right but I think of it as just Austen treating children with as little consequence as they were treated in her time.
