in consequence of the missive, What's so bad about Mrs. Clay?, penned by nan duval
It hurts Lady Russell to see Anne ("only Anne") constantly slighted by her sister (and father) and to herslighted in favour of someone very inferior to herself in terms of character, taste and "elegance of mind". It is actually very offensive that Anne is not allowed to be of any use in choosing a house that she is going to live in (possibly for years), while a person so wholly unconnected with the family as Mrs Clay is claimed to be indispensable.
However, I am sure that, were Mrs Clay some knight's daughter of sorts, Lady Russel wouldn't mind it half so much. As far as Lady Russell's goes, the social position of Mrs Clay clearly outweights every possible flaw in her character.
