early 19th century England, other than Jane Austen? I am not surprised that Admiral Croft enjoyed being around the Musgrove lads, as he himself was childless...this is not uncommon with people who have no children of their own. It is a good thing that the Musgrove boys have one aunt and one set of grandparents who are concerned about them, as their own mother doesn't seem to be doing anything in the child rearing department. Mary seems more concerned with blaming others than doing anything positive about the children's behavior. And Mary's father shows minimal interest, as does their Aunt Elizabeth. Charles may be one of those men who has more interest in his children as they get older, and are able to do things that the father finds of interest, especially if his interests are more in the area of hunting and other outdoor sports.
