Henrietta and Louisa: "he had looked and said every thing with such exquisite grace, that they could assure them all, their heads were both turned by him..."
Mr Musgrove: "Mr. Musgrove ... could add his confirmation and praise"
Charles and Mary: "Her brother and sister came back delighted with their new acquaintance... charming manners in Captain Wentworth..." (all, ch 7)
He really seems to charm all who meet him, and we get to see a bit of it in the dinner Anne attends. His comparison of the Asp to an old pelisse is especially appealing. It's easy to see how Anne fell in love with him and that the Musgrove girls are smitten. I wonder if Anne saw herself in their reaction to Frederick, and how bittersweet that must have been.
