in consequence of the missive, Does Sir John know about Willoughby's family, penned by kathleen (elder)
"But who is he?" said Elinor. "Where does he come from? Has he a house at Allenham?"
On this point Sir John could give more certain intelligence; and he told them that Mr. Willoughby had no property of his own in the country; that he resided there only while he was visiting the old lady at Allenham Court, to whom he was related, and whose possessions he was to inherit; adding, "Yes, yes, he is very well worth catching, I can tell you, Miss Dashwood; he has a pretty little estate of his own in Somersetshire besides; and if I were you, I would not give him up to my younger sister in spite of all this tumbling down hills.
I put the word "wild" in quotation marks, because I didn't when writing have any better word in mind. I meant she is young and prone to do foolish things, because she doesn't think that it is important to obey the society rules, she thinks it is more important to follow your feelings and be genuine. I didn't have a word for that.
