in consequence of the missive, It must be said,..., penned by Jim Morris
He behaves badly she makes fun of it. To me that seems more like she laughs it off than gets fizzed up. His behavior at the assembly only laid the groundwork. It was succeeding events that “built so immoveable a dislike”.
I do think her ego gets in her way but where I see it is in her belief of her own ability to judge another’s character.
What did he sacrifice for her? He suffers for her but in the end he seems to think he’s better for it. “Such I was, from eight to eight-and-twenty; and such I might still have been but for you, dearest, loveliest Elizabeth! What do I not owe you! You taught me a lesson, hard indeed at first, but most advantageous.” So I wouldn’t call that a sacrifice – or did you mean something else?
