in consequence of the missive, I agree! Never really caught on to the "Mrs. Clay" ..., penned by Line
Although I must say IMO, that it is odd for Sir Walter to bring her to Bath and leave Anne behind when Anne was flesh and blood. I wonder what Sir Walter was thinking!
L&T question: When Sir Walter brought Mrs Clay to Bath, what did that mean? Did that mean he paid for her room and board as his daughter's companion? Who paid for her dresses and such things? Is it possible for a companion to pay her own way, sort of like traveling partners?
