in consequence of the missive, And yet, penned by Kathryn Ann
...of your ch. 2 reference! Read the 2 paragraphs starting with your quote, keeping this in mind:
Anne's known wishes were to remain in her beloved neighborhood; Lady R's disagreement was that Anne would come to regret being so near her beloved Kellynch and unable to live there.
She also disagreed that Anne would continue to dislike Bath; since Lady R loved Bath, Anne must come to love it, too, if she gave it a chance.
Finally, the wider society of Bath must inevitably brighten Anne's spirits, and to be more widely known must inevitably bring her into contact with people who could appreciate her.
And, of course, a wider society meant a wider selection of potential suitors...
She was not merely pressing her own desires on Anne. She truly believed she was promoting Anne's welfare.
