John is another charecter whose materialistic approach to life comes to the fore.
John calls next day where he's curious of Colonel Brandon,
John is glad their relations give his sisters and step-mother accomodation while he gives no assistance. He talks of the large purchases of linen and china 'to supply the place of 'what was taken away', the plans for Fanny's greenhouse and his purchase of a farm -and then comments,
John always self-justifies his attitude to wealth.
No wonder Elinor's mild pleasure at seeing John after several months is soon overtaken by a distate for John's hypocrisy and snobbery.
