in consequence of the missive, I think you have misunderstood me..., penned by Ra
I think Mary became unhappy, whiny and complaining partly because of her childhood -- her mother died when she was only 10, her father and eldest sister were selfish and neglectful, and she came to feel ill-used and neglected by everyone. But she should have come to feel happier after her marriage -- her husband was a good-natured, agreeable man -- re chap 6. Although Charles did not have the "powers, or conversation or grace" that could have attracted Anne to marry him, "in sense and temper he was undoubtedly superior" to Mary. "He had very good spirits, which never seemed much affected by his wife's occasional lowness; bore with her unreasonableness sometimes to Anne's admiration".
