in consequence of the missive, lack of appreciation, penned by Jenny Allan
Anne is also given the opportunity to exhibit like the Musgrove girls. We are told that her performance was little thought of, only out of civility, or to refresh the others, which means that though the Musgroves were incapable of appreciating her skill at the piano, they, out of courtesy, sometimes thought of her performance (and sometimes when the others needed a break too). What is your source that she never has a chance to exhibit?
As for the Miss Musgroves never taking care of the children, in Chapter 9 we are told that Anne was ... enabled by the entrance of Mary and the Miss Musgroves, to make over her little patient to their cares, and leave the room.
