in consequence of the missive, I totally agree with you about "steady",, penned by Anselm
he is disposed to do the right thing. In the infamous exchanges of Chapter 2, he says, "It was my father's last request to me...that I should assist his widow and daughters." "He did not stipulate for any particular sum, my dear Fanny; he only requested me in general terms, to assist them and make their situation more comfortable than it was in his power to do. Perhaps it would have been as well if he had left it wholly to myself. He could hardly suppose I should neglect them."
If, in the face of his father's dying wish, John Dashwood could see fit to do nothing for his stepmother & sisters, how can he suppose he would not neglect them if it were left wholly to himself?
