And they are related. Sometimes I think Anne is poking fun at men, especially of the Navy. I find it hard to believe that Captain Wentworth who has fought in battles, would be reduced to panic over Louisa's fall. I would think long years of training would make him instinctly act calmly and quickly. How did this guy make it through a war running a ship?????
And the same with the Admiral. How the heck did he get to where he is if he can't even drive a carriage without his wife's good-natured guidance.
Are these men cool in battle but come apart when women are around? No wonder Wentworth doesn't want a woman on his ship!
I always thought Jane was teasing her Navy brothers somehow with this.
