in consequence of the missive, Chap 57: Mr Collins's letter, penned by kathleen (elder)
I am being a bit obtuse here but I have not figured out the "olive branch" metaphor. How can Charlotte bearing a child be any sort of peace offering? If anything if its a boy then the Bennets have surely lost Longborne for ever. An apple of discord if you like.
Is it remotely possible that "olive branch" refers to something else?
