in consequence of the missive, Admiration on Elinor's strong character., penned by Lex
Oh, I do admire her, and I think it is remarkable how she stands out from her mother and sisters, in the first chapter alone. Even though she can govern her feelings, she is not wihtout them and I am glad that her sense can be of use to her family (where would they have run off to if Elinor had not stopped Mrs Dashwood?). "...enabled her frequently to counteract, to the advantage of them all, that eagerness of mind in Mrs Dashwood which must generally have led to imprudence." It's a good thing that they have Elinor!
I wonder if Mr Henry Dashwood was more like Elinor, since Marianne and Margaret seem to take on after their mother.
