in consequence of the missive, CW's text, penned by Golda
for my growing theory that FW tends to idealize women, and one woman in particular. Even with the excellent example of his sister staring him in the face, he says that accomodations can't be made good enough for what women "ought to have." And where does his notion of what ought to be done for women formed? was it his experience with Anne or the substandard women he met afterward that made him think no woman could ever be comfortable on a ship?
Also, I agree with those who've said that this line is a set-up to lead into Mrs. Crofts comments, one of my favoirte passages in the book.
