in consequence of the missive, Persuading Anne – was Lady Russell right? (long), penned by Rachel G
so to her mind they were. Earlier she speaks of Elizabeth's reluctance to take on a better value judgement than her own, that was, in taking on Lady Russell's advice. So it didn't matter, Lady Russell had the power to influence Anne, possibly because of her mother like status and social standing, according to the text.
Anne took her advice, because perhaps she saw it as superior to her own heart's flutterings? It's also intriguing that Lady Russell is perhaps her only stalwart friend, and what price was to be paid in losing her, in opposing her?
