in consequence of the missive, Autumnal Persuasion, Week 2, penned by Cheryl
I see all these autumnal references as quite poignant. In fact, I see all the poignant statements as being very autumnal, too. Several of the most poignant/autumnal lines have already been mentioned, so I'll just add a few more:
From Chapter 7
"'So altered that he should not have known her again!' ... They were of sobering tendency; ... consequently must make her happier." --- Happier! Oh my goodness (again!)!
From Chapter 10
"...she went after Mary, ... felt some comfort in their whole party ... and once more in motion together. Her spirits wanted the solitude and silence which only numbers could give." -- Ironic as well as poignant!
Sorry to comment on this to long-time Janeites, but from a relatively new one, WHAT A WRITER JA WAS!
