in consequence of the missive, Edward didn't come from London though, penned by Barbara
In chapter 19 Marianne complains about how they are at the mercy of the Middletons, The rent of this cottage is said to be low; but we have it on very hard terms, if we are to dine at the park whenever any one is staying either with them or with us.
Elinor responds that We must look for the change elsewhere, however they cannot do this as their social circle is dictated by the Middletons.
It's not only the ladies who have this problem with lack of control over their destiny. Edward discusses in the same chapter (and I don't think it's a co-incidence) that he wished to join the clergy, but he was forced into idleness by his family.
