in consequence of the missive, How many children did the Musgroves have?, penned by MarianneR
that the number of Musgrove children are mentioned. We never get a roll call. Harry, from the context of being in the Musgrove's nursery (or at least under the old nurse's care), appears to be the youngest child as we are given no information on a cousin or such living with them (like Fanny Price.)
Also, I noted here that the Musgroves retained a servant, the old nurse, that they could easily have dismissed once she was no longer needed. Was this neglect to think about her? Or, as I like to think, the Musgroves allowing an old and valued servant to continue in the house rather than turf her out to a poor old age. Another glimpse at their warm house in contrast to the Elliot's.
