in consequence of the missive, Engagements, penned by Diane DeS
I've linked a very informative post by Julie from the L&T archives about 'breach of promise'. This one pertains to Willoughby and Marianne, and how he carefully avoided saying anything that would have landed him in this type of legal situation.
But Julie W's careful explanation also explains that Lucy could have brought a 'breach of promise' action against Edward under the circumstances. He can't get out of this engagement by dropping her or by telling her he now loves Elinor, etc.
**warning, the post at L&T has spoilers for later in S&S, beyond the chapters we will read this week.
