in consequence of the missive, Lizzy the judge?, penned by Vania
This is a question only B. Michelle can answer as it was she who attributed the thought that Anne should not go about visiting if she is too sickly to oblige the Collins' by coming inside everytime she passed by to Lizzy. I will say the idea seems remarkably similar to the thought that Darcy should not have attended the Assembly if he was too out of sorts to entertain everyone's fondest wish.
]In this case, Anne had called to invite them to dine in Rosings the next day.
Yes, but B Michelle seemed to be basing her interpretation of Lizzy's attitudes on Maria's comment that Anne hardly ever comes in and it was that to which I was responding
]Anne was the rude one for keeping Charlotte out of doors in the wind.
Now that is just pure speculation. I will speculate too. We know that Mr. as well as Mrs. Collins stood at the garden gate so I speculate that Anne was too polite to chirp her ponies onward whilst Mr. Collins was in mid lengthy grovelling thanks for the invitation. That Anne, who hardly speaks two words together, should be the cause of prolonging the proceedings is not as probable, I think, as Mr. Collins wishing to keep Anne listening.
