I don't quite get your meaning here. Why is Mrs. Clay being safe from Sir Walter's attentions (because of her freckles, etc.) a put down to Anne? Or do you mean it's another argument against the necessity of Anne's warning?
Speaking of Mrs. Clay's freckles, what is a "clumsy wrist?" Just not being graceful or coordinated? Anyone know?
"Mrs. Clay had freckles, and a projecting tooth, and a clumsy wrist, which he was continually making severe remarks upon, in her absence" (ch. 5)
