in consequence of the missive, Does the "in" make a difference?, penned by Ann2
I agree that the 'in' and also the fact that the phrase 'though not so correct as her sister's' with commas is set off as an appositive to explain the preceeding word, and can be removed without altering the meaning of the sentence.
If the height refered to Elinor, the comma after the word 'sister's' would have to be removed.
