in consequence of the missive, Admiration on Elinor's strong character., penned by Lex
"on the arrival of the latter,[Mrs J Dashwood] she would have quitted the house for ever, had not the entreaty of her eldest girl induced her first to reflect on the propriety of going, and her own tender love for all her three children determined her afterwards to stay, and for their sakes avoid a breach with their brother.
