in consequence of the missive, I read this as Marianne being taller than Elinor, penned by Barbara
According to Margaret Anne Doody and Douglas Murray, editors of Catherine and Other Writings (the Oxford World's Classics edition of JA's juvenilia), references to proper height are "a running joke in JA's fiction" (p. 327, in notes to p. 129).
I posted about this during our GR of the juvenilia in June. (Linked below.)
