in consequence of the missive, Lady Middleton's none-too-subtle hints, penned by Barbara
Her "cold civility" reminds me further of the analysis in my Barnes and Noble edition of S&S. Part of the analysis discussed the characters' ability to use language in subtle and manipulative ways, to ensure they don't reveal too much. It seems like Lady Middleton has picked up on this ability (to a point)in being able to seem perfectly civil yet be perfectly poisonous underneath!
