in consequence of the missive, Notes from Lyme, penned by Cheryl
These little 'throw-away' bits add up to a pretty convincing whole, after a while, IMO.
I mentioned in last weeks readings the little bit at the end of Ch. 10, where the Admiral was wondering why Frederick doesn't "spread a little canvas" and marry one of the Musgrove sisters, and Anne detects that Sophia's praise of them is not so eager.
I really have to think that she has got to be noticing the connection her brother has to Anne. She's a smart woman.
--She's aware that Frederick spent time in the area in 1806 with their brother.
--She's well aware that he put Anne in their carriage to be driven home
--She learns that he sent information to Anne about how things fared in Lyme
--He praises Anne to her and particularly asks after her
--I have no doubt that she recalls this little speech of her brother's from Ch. 7
--And now Sophia is treating Anne as 'a favourite'--Hmmmmm.
I think Sophia definitely has her suspicions about her younger brother and Miss Elliot, and is growing less surprised that there has not been a proposal to one of the Miss Musgroves.
