in consequence of the missive, Mrs. Clay, the anti-heroine?, penned by Jen N.
"There is hardly any personal defect," replied Anne, "which an agreeable manner might not gradually reconcile one to."
"I think very differently," answered Elizabeth, shortly; "an agreeable manner may set off handsome features, but can never alter plain ones. However, at any rate, as I have a great deal more at stake on this point than any body else can have, I think it rather unnecessary in you to be advising me."
Elizabeth never met Mr. Crawford! Dark and under 6 ft! Yet the Bertram girls had no problem "reconciling" his looks with his manners.
Does E's reference to "more at stake" refer to her impending spinsterhood?
