in consequence of the missive, Mr Gardiner's parents are certainly dead, penned by Kathleen Glancy
As Kathleen Glancy pointed out, Mrs. Gardiner is a young woman with small children. I have often wondered about Mr. Gardiner's age. While we are told Mrs. Gardiner is younger than her sisters-in-law, we don't know whether Mr. Gardiner might also be much younger than his sisters, or whether he waited to get established in business before marrying. I always thought he might be much younger, just because his father's business was taken over by Mr. Philips, who was his clerk, and not by the son, which might be more usual.
