I'm always greatly amused at this scene from Chapter 13 in P1. The Admiral is telling Anne about her father having so many mirrors "...there was no getting away from oneself..." and, while moving around the room, he is startled by encountering his own reflection in yet ANOTHER mirror! Very funny scene.
And from the same paragraph in Chapter 13: "I should think he must be rather a dressy man for his time of life." If only Sir Walter could hear what the Admiral thinks of his age!
A scene in P2 is also particularly clever in revealing Sir Walter's vanity. It was at a dinner, and Sir Walter picks up the dinner knife, and primps at his reflection in the blade! Very cleverly done!
