in consequence of the missive, Two Elizas, penned by Deborah d'Bajor
I'm not completely sure on this intriguing point.
There appears so much in the novel about secrecy and the nature of feeling.
The second Eliza is her daughter entrusted to the Colonel's care whom he accepts as 'a precious trust.'
Elinor agrees with Col. Brandon his account of Willoughby's despicable behaviour may help Marieanne recover from her infatuation.
The lives of the two Elizas parallel each other in many ways. Yet if the first Eliza reminds us the Colonel is a man of feeling; Perhaps the second Eliza shows us he is also a man of honour and her sad story gives us sympathy with Marieanne regarding Willoughby.
