in consequence of the missive, Elizabeth: Chapter one, penned by Cheryl
This does go beyond chapter 1 - but even there Elizabeth is shown to be vain and foolish. How can the few things she thinks about be considered retrenching? Those would barely make up any money (somehow I don't think she would be picking out very expensive gifts for Anne!).
By chapter 5 you see her defend her choice to take Mrs. Clay with her to Bath with this infallible logic: "Mrs. Clay never forgets who she is; and as I am rather better acquainted with her sentiments than you can be, I can assure you, that upon the subject of marriage they are particularly nice . . .". This is completely illogical - she is using the thinking of the very person she is being warned against! I know she is stubbron and arrogant - but this just seems too idiotic as well!
