in consequence of the missive, Thoughts on Brandon, penned by James S.
I don't think he had feet of clay, but a heart of gold, which did not make him put himself in the centre of his behaviour.
If he had stayed back closeby, in London or so - he is actually giving in to 'himself' without thinking of Eliza and her marriage, where he has no place.
If he thinks his £2000 per annum should be a great qualification for his eligibility - wouldn't he be sort of putting material value on himself, and on Marianne's thinking?
The 'name' has been dealt with in Barbara's post.
He didn't fight the duel for 'himself'. Telling Marianne would be putting himself in the centre without considering Marianne's position in relation to himself.
A man full of 'himself' would probably do the things you have mentioned.
