in consequence of the missive, Is Charlotte's understanding due to wealth or..., penned by Adrian
Geri-Lynn in part, as in that I do find some of Charlotte's moral views to be different than mine. Of course, perhaps it is just how she presents them; I often find that people misunderstand my own statements on moral subjects. Worldview/moral subjects can often and easily be misunderstood.
As to what Adrian says, I have to say that I would sooner attribute the young Lucas boy's words to silliness than anything else. I'm sure I said many an equally or even moreso silly thing in my day. I would sooner fault Mrs. Bennet for taking it up with him. I mean, after all, IMO it's just a child's silliness, yet Mrs. Bennet seems to take it far too seriously.
"Then you would drink a great deal more than you ought," said Mrs. Bennet; "and if I were to see you at it, I should take away your bottle directly."
The boy protested that she should not; she continued to declare that she would, and the argument ended only with the visit. (Chapter 5, emphasis mine)
Just my two cents worth. I'm more flexible to my ideas about Charlotte since most of them have been formed from the film (P&P 2), and not yet had the chance to stand up enough of the book to substantiate them.
