in consequence of the missive, Mr. Brandon, penned by Barbara
This is Colonel Brandon, explaining about the first Eliza: "...but at last the misery of her situation, for she experienced great unkindness, overcame all her resolution, and though she had promised me that nothing -- --" JA stops the Colonel here, sentence unfinished.
