|Mrs Dashwood's letter.

in consequence of the missive, One thing against, penned by Robbin
You had me largely convinced on Mrs Dashwood writing only one letter here.
I doubt Mrs Dashwood's intention was to give Sir John extra expense, but she has a warm and impulsive temperment.
Also, even if Mrs D. did not intend to take the offer, she may've felt obliged to write to thank Sir John instead of remaining silent- and Sir John would pay this postage cost.
* Footnote: Possibly, letters at Norland and Barton Park were 'franked'. Household letters were taken to the local MP's house as part of his post free.
