in consequence of the missive, Why is it unjust?, penned by CarolTS
I think he is unjust in his reference to the "powers of mind" that Louisa Musgrove (or any woman) will need to be happy: here for powers of mind Capt. Wentworth means decision and firmness as opposed to Anne's (supposed) fickleness.
I'm not saying that he doesn't have a right to have a broken heart and to be angry with the one who broke it, but I do not approve the way he seems to turn Anne's exact opposite into the picture of perfection. If Anne shew a persuadable character, then he seems to think that only the most immovable decision is right in a woman.
We shall find out whether Louisa's "character of decision and firmness" will prove the recipe for happiness....
Oh, and let me just point out the Mary shows quite a firm character, not easily persuadable...
