in consequence of the missive, Wentworth's prolonged stay, penned by Cheryl
I'd think about this more (if I find the time! Argh! :), but I believe while it is true that the Musgroves' cheerfulness and hospitality are reasons enough for him to visit them very often, I think he gives it more credence to that reason more than he actually should.
After all, as (I think him to be) a man out of touch with his feelings, he has to rationalize the fact that he visits, and cannot seem to leave, Uppercross, *the place where Anne is*.
I think Anne herself is the *ultimate* (though unacknowledged) attraction of Uppercross.
The reason that the Musgroves fawn over him is one excuse that makes him stay there and postpone his visit to Edward, but for better reasons unrecognized by him, it is actually Anne alone that brings him there. ;)
