|You remind me of something I noticed...

in consequence of the missive, Admiral Croft, penned by Cheryl
In Chapter 3, Anne makes the remarks quoted above by Cheryl when Sir Walter asks "And who is Admiral Croft?" It struck me that no one notices the strangeness of Anne's comment -- she knows an awful lot from memory about this Admiral Croft and yet there's no mention of anyone even looking at Anne suspiciously; Sir Walter just goes on to remark that Admiral Croft must be as "orange as the cuffs and capes of my livery."
Is this because Anne's knowledge of this particular Admiral would not be as odd to her present company as it seems to me? Or perhaps this is just another instance of no one really regarding what Anne says?
Perhaps if Lady Russell was in the room she would have noticed?
