in consequence of the missive, Elizabeth's treatment of Anne, penned by Jean B
Elizabeth's treatment of Anne makes my blood boil. Her statement in Ch. 5 that
"Then I am sure Anne had better stay, for nobody will want her in Bath." and "Mrs. Clay's being of so much use, while Anne could be of none"
Just makes me see red. And then there's this heartbreaking sentence
"Anne herself was become hardened to such affronts;"
It indicates that this is long-standing treatment. Anne has become used to being rejected and ignored. Yes, I think it's deliberate. I can bring myself to laugh at Sir Walter, but Elizabeth is vile.
