in consequence of the missive, After all those years with Lady Elliot whom Anne favored..., penned by JanELT
However, I think we can agree that Sir Walter feels no *self*-pity whatever - except occasionally when he is reminded of his finances, or when some inferior person fails to give him his due, he is one of the happiest people in the novel! ;-)
What you say about his wife's influence failing to improve Sir Walter's character is interesting. Both Anne and LR feel that Charles Musgrove's character would have improved with a better wife, but I guess even they would agree that a wife needed a certain minimum to start with!
