in consequence of the missive, Self-important people and pleasing Anne, penned by Kalyn
I find the idea that openness is what Anne values compelling. I may be true but she seems so very closed herself. And yet she does not seem to deride herself for it. Perhaps she is more open than I think but few are willing to look.
Anne seems to have very strict standards for strangers but not so very strict standards for friends. Mrs. Clay is too low but Mrs. Harville is perfectly decent company. I know there is a difference of motive but the assessment of Mrs. Clay always seemed very cruel to me.
Lady R's value for rank is high and based on nothing. She and Anne do not seem to share the same taste in books and Lady R cannot appreciate wit. Why not condemn lady R for being blinded by rank?
