in consequence of the missive, See no evil, penned by Robbin
Quite delightful!" cried Mrs. Clay, not daring, however, to turn her eyes towards Anne. "Exactly like father and son! Dear Miss Elliot, may I not say father and son?"
"Oh! I lay no embargo on anybody's words. If you will have such ideas! But, upon my word, I am scarcely sensible of his attentions being beyond those of other men."
I always thought this a quite telling sentence as it seems to imply that Elizabeth is aware of how a gentleman would behave if he was interested in her, and she sees it not in Mr Elliot. Surely then she must know that Anne is receiving such attention ?
