in consequence of the missive, IMHO - I don't think she was, penned by Susan Elizabeth
I think a Mrs Musgrove as a mother can still mourn a child regardless of him being worthy or shiftless; nor did I say she tried to keep him home.
When discussion turned to the lamentable Dick Musgrove his mother comments he 'was grown so steady' and 'an excelent correspondent' under CW.
'There was a momentary expression in Captain Wentworth's face face at this speech..., which convinced Anne, that instead of sharing in Mrs Musgrove's kind wishes, as to her son, he had been at some pains to get rid of him;..., and entered into a conversation with her, in a low voice, about her son doing it with so much sypathy and natural grace, as shewed the kindest consideration for all that was real and unabsurd in the parent's feelings'.(ch.8)
