in consequence of the missive, Brown mare and curricle, penned by Barbara
I can see now why Willoughby would have felt threatened by Colonel Brandon's finding fault with his curricle, but perhaps the Colonel would have been more mindful to insult him on his lack of means - so maybe it is more a reflection on his lack of judgement?
Never thought of the symbolic value of the curricle, interesting point.
So Willoughby's poorly hung carraige is either due to lack of better knowledge of how it should be hung, the lack of finances or due to carelessness - hmmm all of the above is probable.
I suppose the motivation for selling the mare for financial reasons is the more logical assumption. I just wanted to give the Colonel another talent:).
