in consequence of the missive, Margaret's Wish, penned by BarbaraB
I think the fireside discussion in ch. 17 also reveals the different approaches to life of the two sisters:
Marieanne asks, 'What have wealth or grandeur to do with happiness ?' although it is clear that she believes life would be unendurable without a large house with servents, a carriage and one must have hunters. ;)
When Margaret wishes someone would give them 'a large fortune a piece', an animated Edward joins in discussion of how the Dashwoods would spend their new wealth.
