in consequence of the missive, Huswife; continuing the engagement; what sort of Doctor?, penned by Tom P2
I don't think the title Doctor was used for the medical profession in JAs time. There is certainly another cleric with the title though - Dr Grant in MP. Not sure what one had to do to gain this title over other clergymen?
I suppose Lucy has nothing to lose by maintaining her engagement. Edward does have an income - however small, and she might expect something from her father and/or uncle? would a man in his right senses offer for her? ;-)
