in consequence of the missive, The opposite, penned by Cheryl
The sight of Mrs Clay in such favour, and of Anne so overlooked, was a perpetual provocation to her there; and vexed her as much when she was away, as a person in Bath who drinks the water, gets all the new publications, and has a very large acquaintance, has time to be vexed.
I think it reflects negatively on LR as well. It brings to mind a topic that came up during the first week of the GR: several readers pointed out how LR fails to make sure that Anne gets out in society beyond her small neighbourhood.
In both instances, LR feels something, but not enough to be troubled all that much by such feelings. She doesn't feel concerned enough about Anne's being in society to make sure Anne actually is seen in society (and it is this very society for which she felt she needed to save Anne, in encouraging her to break her engagement to CW), nor does she feel concerned all that much about Mrs. Clay, given all of the diversions Bath has to offer, and the demands such diversions have on her time and attention!
