in consequence of the missive, Mr. William Elliot, penned by Cheryl
No matter how annoying Sir Walter and Elizabeth Elliot might be--no matter how displeasing their company is--Mr. Elliot is to inherit Kellynch. It is rude beyond excusing that he should ignore invitations with no explanation or correspondence.
Gentlemen just don't do that. I have several family members with whom 10 minutes of conversation is enough to try the patience of Job...but I don't ignore them or shirk my responsibilities to them as members of the family.
I have had employers and coworkers that I just could not abide...but I was gracious and professional whenever our work required that of me.
Mr. Elliot, in my current opinion, is an immature and selfish fool.
It has been, literally, more than 7 years since I read Persuasion...so I do not remember what Austen has in store for Mr. Elliot. I'm quite sure it will end badly, though. *wink*
