in consequence of the missive, Mrs, Jennings, Miss Bates, Margaret, penned by Aruna
I hadn't ever thought of Mrs. Jennings and Miss Bates in similar terms, but on this reading it's so clear! And I'm really appreciating the role of these "extra" characters in moving the plot ahead. Along the same lines, I've often wondered why Margaret was in the story at all, and had previously subscribed to the "leftover from the epistolary format" theory, but it's clear here that she has some pretty critical things to do!
