in consequence of the missive, Lucy’s intentions and sense of propriety, penned by Robbin
is when Lucy pointed states that her suspicions would have been arroused had Edward talked more of one lady than an other. I'm sure, as you seem to be, that she's aware of Elinor's interest in Edward, and most likely of Edward's interest in Elinor, but this troubles me.
I just don't see Edward as likely to be talking alot of Elinor while he's in Lucy's company, it seems out of character for a yound man who seems to pretty reserved generally.
I'm sure that his behavior towards Lucy has changed, has become much less warm, as he begins to regret the engagement, but I'd guess that that occurred even before he spent time with Elinor at Norland.
So to what can we attribute Lucy's knowledge? Is she merely suspicious or do you think she has some sort of "concrete" evidence to back up her behavior? I don't have a firm answer to this one, but I'm curious to see what ideas might be out there.
