in consequence of the missive, Anne's Ambition?, penned by Deborah d'Bajor
Trouble is, Miss De Bourgh doesn't apppear to have an idea in her head that wasn't Lady C's idea first ;) I agree Anne wasn't adverse to marrying Darcy, but I doubt she knew if she personally liked him. Anne would not be used to the company of many young men (I wonder if Lady C keeps Anne away from them?) so she may feel she benefits by knowing her cousin who is appear of her poor health. And yes, she's spared the husband hunt. Her mother would remind her the marriage would mean the consolidation of the family estates. Materially, she would be one of the greatest ladies in England. Mr Darcy does not appear to feel honour bound to his cousin yet Lady C. appears confident of the arrangement. I wonder why Darcy doesn't clarify to his aunt he will not necessarily marry Anne? He has a high sense of family duty. Is he keeping the option open or simply for the sake of family peace for as long as possible?
