in consequence of the missive, The state of matrimony, penned by Maisy
"... she began now to have the anxiety which borders on hopelessness for Anne's NEVER being tempted, by some man of talents and independence, to enter a state for which she held her to be peculiarly fitted by her warm affections and domestic habits."
Without the word "never" I was trying to think what other state Anne might end up in - the only one that fitted the rest of the sentence was somebody's mistress, but that didn't seem like our respectable Anne at all.
