in consequence of the missive, Willoughby resolved to undervalue Brandon's merits, penned by Barbara
The terms 'nabobs, gold mohrs and palaquins' I believe are associated with officials in service in India.
I think Robbin has a good point people are often jealous of those to whom they feel inferior. In Ch. 15 Willoughby calls himself 'a dependent cousin' by contrast, Brandon is independent, a self-made man whom Willoughby considers to have 'more money than he can spend'.
Perhaps Willoughby realizes apart from Sir John's calling him 'a decent shot'... nobody thinks so highly of him. I mean who'd really miss Willoughby when he's not around ? ;)
