in consequence of the missive, should we like Mrs. Smith?, penned by Margaret H
I've never really been able to understand Mrs. Smith and all that she does. I can understand her hesitating to divulge her knowledge if she thinks Anne & WWE are already engaged, but she only suspects a marriage will happen in the future at this point. Also, she has written proof. If all she had was hearsay I could see why she would hesitate, but with the written proof I don't understand why she doesn't tell all.
The main part I have a problem with, though, is how she pleads his case: Let me plead for my -- present friend I cannot call him, but for my former friend. Where can you look for a more suitable match? Where could you expect a more gentlemanlike, agreeable man? Let me recommend Mr. Elliot. I am sure you hear nothing but good of him from Colonel Wallis; and who can know him better than Colonel Wallis? Chap 21.
