in consequence of the missive, A SUTH for Lucy, penned by Pennie
I was poised to say something along the lines of "Oh Elinor, why didn't you just stall, think it over, and then not promise secrecy?" But Elinor's promise of secrecy seems to be based on some guiding principle, not a mistake in the heat of the moment. It fits well with Lucy being a ruthless schemer: she thinks over what she already knows of Elinor, and isn't taking much of a risk.
The Steeles' grammar is so much worse than anyone else's, that we can be pretty sure it was deliberate on JA's part.
