in consequence of the missive, Obtaining Hair, penned by Robbin
From Ch. 23: Had he feigned a regard for her which he did not feel? Was his engagement to Lucy an engagement of the heart? No; whatever it might once have been, she could not believe it such at present. His affection was all her own. She could not be deceived in that. Her mother, sisters, Fanny, all had been conscious of his regard for her at Norland; it was not an illusion of her own vanity. He certainly loved her.
I am heartened by her confidence, as it helps her bear the burden of the knowledge of Edward and Lucy's engagement towards herself. But I did wonder, when reading this, how she has so much confidence in this, especially after his subsequent behavior later (like the last visit... where he did not seek Elinor out in particular, etc.)
