in consequence of the missive, Interesting, but I can not believe it., penned by Stephanie
Im not so sure. I think that she felt that Anne would be taking a great risk to marry him, given that he had little money and had his way to make in hte world. And htat since that was the case, there were grave concerns as to wehter she'd be happy over and above whether lady R liked him in a personal sense. And she did NOT personally like him all that much. But if he had had a decent income and possibly some more "connextions", ie a rich well bred uncle somewhere, she would have felt more tolerant of his personality...Just as she's willing to forgive Sir Walter SOME of his bad behaviour because she has "prejudices on the side of ancestry". But OTOH, wehn Charles Musgrove came along, Lady R still wanted something "better" in terms of intelligence and personality for Anne.
