in consequence of the missive, The commas., penned by Reeba
By the comma logic you describe, then, if the comma after the word sister's was not there, that would be one continuous thought.
"Her form, though not so correct as her sister's in having the advantage of height, was more striking;"
The comma there separates the height from the sister's (Elinor's). Also, as I have already said, Jane Austen indicates that she is equating height and having a striking figure.
