in consequence of the missive, Anne's eyes, penned by Mandy M
CW's very cold and indifferent treatment of her.
His painful and hurtful references to the year '06 that only Anne understands fully.
Memories of what had been and sadness over their remembrance: the pleasant teasing about naval ignorance, the rapt admiration (and basking in his glow :) while playing music, the nonstop conversations.
The knowledge of what she has lost. "Once so much to each other! Now nothing!"
An idea of what she has lost. What she and Frederick had was something the other married couples (excepting the Crofts) don't have. Had they married, they could have been as particularly attached and happy as Sophy and the Admiral.
And I think the stress of it all. She has been in nervous agitation ever since CW came to Kellynch. That night, it was even more stressful due to references to wives and careers and the year '06. Not to mention the very painful and awkward "perfect estrangement".
I don't wonder why Anne can't help but quietly cry.
