|A thought from Ch 3...

In mulling over the advantages of Admiral Croft as a tenant, Sir Walter thinks, "I have let my house to Admiral Croft," would sound extremely well; very much better than to any mere Mr. -- a Mr. (save, perhaps, some half-dozen in the nation) always needs a note of explanation.
To me, I see a lot of JA's novels in each other. Not specifically by mention, but yet nuances of it, I guess. Not to mix two novels, but wouldn't Mr. Darcy be one of those half-dozen men who need no explanation (at least according to Mr. Collins, who calls Mr. Darcy one of the most illustrious personages in this land)? I just hear echoes of Mr. Darcy stating, "I cannot boast of knowing more than half a dozen, in the whole range of my acquaintance, that are really accomplished."
Do certain parts of one novel remind you of others? Was this intentional by JA or are we just so well versed in her other novels that we summon it up?
