in consequence of the missive, Chapter 11, paragraph 5 ...., penned by Rachel G
I agree that the use of the word 'season' suggests something that is ever-changing and not permanent. If there is a 'season' of happiness, then it must be followed by 'season' of something else--or they wouldn't be seasons.
It is similar to this description of Mrs. Dashwood from Ch. 2:
In seasons of cheerfulness, no temper could be more cheerful than hers, or possess, in a greater degree, that sanguine expectation of happiness which is happiness itself. But in sorrow she must be equally carried away by her fancy, and as far beyond consolation as in pleasure she was beyond alloy.
