in consequence of the missive, Do you think..., penned by Lynn
That left me with the impression that he had the brown mare with him, if he was trying to sell it to the colonel--but maybe not. Maybe he needs to unload some of his horses from his estate due to the expense of keeping them, and when he can't sell this one, tries to give her away?
I never made that connection before either, but you are right that it seriously puts a pall on the romance of the gift if this is true!
