in consequence of the missive, I'm with you there, penned by Pennie
to the Mrs Jennings Protection League.
Mrs Jennings appears as a figure of fun, which she is- 'a good humoured, merry, fat, elderly woman, who talked a great deal, seemed very happy, and rather vulgar.'
Then her tolerance and patience with her son-in-law emerges and I agree in these chapters Mrs Jennings gossipy, inquisitive qualities are outweighed by her great kindness. She really seemed grieved for Marianne.
Her heart is in the right place and in her way she is a lovable charecter. If only she had abit of discretion about openly discussing other people's business !
Yet I think Mrs Jennings real worth as a person begins to emerge. :)
