in consequence of the missive, Exposure Inevitable, penned by Robbin
Unless Colonel Fitzwilliam thought 'strong objections' to the lady ONLY meant few connections and little fortune, he was not likely to connect them with Elizabeth's situation. Indeed, had he thought they MIGHT mean that, he still would not be insulting her prospects, even obliquely, since phrasing it that way leaves it totally open, whether we mean a illiterate, artful, selfish fortune-hunter, a manipulative, cold-hearted flirt, a dazzling-but-unprincipled heiress, or a vain coquette. (Time yourself! Can you match up Jane Austen's characters with their description in less than ten seconds?) (Okay, just kidding... *winks*)
