"...that Captain Wentworth had been in Kellynch yesterday (the first time since the accident), had brought Anne the last note... "
I like how the specifics of the note are not given, but I cannot help but wonder what it said. Has anyone else thought about it? What would be the proper salutation and sign-off for such a note?
"He had enquired after her, she found, particularly; had expressed his hope of Miss Elliot's not being the worse for her exertions, and had spoken of those exertions as great. This was handsome, and gave her more pleasure than almost any thing else could have done."
I love how just knowing that he was asking about her, expressed concern for her, and praised her so fully to others (versus finding her so altered he wouldn't have known her a few weeks earlier) makes her so happy. It could very well be the last she ever hears of him (until his engagement to Louisa is announced). That it's a positive impression is better than the indifference of before.
