in consequence of the missive, I agree, penned by Lizzy A
The introductory essay in Barron's Educational Series version of the play edited by Vincent F. Hopper and Gerald B. Lahey of New York University:
"[i]By the time the combatants are supposed to have arrived at their ground, David alarms the whole town, while Mrs. Malaprop, Lydia, Sir Anthony, Mr. Fualkland, and Julia Melville with constables, &c., soon after arrive, and prevent the fatal effects of a duel by a general eclairisement, [b]which terminates the comedy by the old aunt's giving her hand to Sir Lucius[/b], and the marriage of Captain Absolute with Miss Languish.[/i]"
Do you think it means her literal hand or her hand in marriage?
