in consequence of the missive, The Dashwood women accepted Willoughby, penned by kathleen (elder)
Sir John recommends him also, "He is as good a sort of fellow as ever lived" and Sir John also knows about his family and so forth. Of course the Dashwood women want to believe good of Willoughby. But as a reader, at this stage I don't feel much alarm. The things I wonder about is taking Marianne to Allenham without a chaperone and the rapid speed of the romance, which I would wonder, as a cynical middle-aged woman, in real life, too. But nothing very serious to worry about, only things you could think are excess behaviour by young and "wild" people.
