in consequence of the missive, Was LR wrong about CW?, penned by Kara M
Yes, she did have some objections, not only to his financial staus, but to his character:
"but Lady Russell saw it very differently. His sanguine temper, and fearlessness of mind, operated very differently on her. She saw in it but an aggravation of the evil. It only added a dangerous character to himself. He was brilliant, he was headstrong. Lady Russell had little taste for wit, and of any thing approaching to imprudence a horror. She deprecated the connexion in every light." (ch 4)
