in consequence of the missive, John Dashwood and his stepmother, penned by Heather Leigh
would this not have affected his treatment of his stepsisters after their father's death? I always wondered if he had grown up with them, he would have had more tender feelings towards his stepsisters and his stepmother and Fanny might not have been so successful in talking him down from providing for them.
As you mentioned, I have always presumed that like Frank Churchhill, he waas raised by his mother's family elsewhere and never mixed much with his father and his father's second family.
