in consequence of the missive, Bath, penned by CarolTS
I rather thought that by the time JA revised the novel (though perhaps not at the first writing of it) Bath was very much a city for elderly invalids, rather than a fun watering place like Brighton. So would Willoughby have been likely to be going around there looking for a bit of amusement? I also find it hard to understand how Eliza II was so totally "unchaperoned" that she appears to have fallen into the demi monde so easily... Did WIlloughby take her away from Bath after a short while and set her up in lodgings as his mistress and then left her, after which she went searching for him because of her pregnancy?
