|I often find myself wondering how people know where to send mail.

in consequence of the missive, Marianne knew his address, however,, penned by kathleen (elder)
I did notice that about Marianne and Willoughby. Perhaps if she just put 'Bond St.' it would be enough information to get there? If he generally stayed on Bond St. and didn't have his own house there, I mean. Of course, this could be something he entirely neglected to tell Eliza as well. Without even the name of a street, I don't know where you'd even start in London. It also seems really odd to me that Willoughby had told this to Marianne, considering that he didn't really want her to find him.
We've already talked about how Lucy corresponded with Edward, but I just really can't imagine the logistics of getting mail to him while he was living with his mother or staying with Fanny. We speculated that he might get mail at some place he might keep at Oxford, or maybe there were post office boxes somewhere?
Anne Steele tells Elinor ""Edward talks of going to Oxford soon but now he is lodging at No. -- , Pall Mall." --so there they had a specific address away from his family, and where Elinor, too, was able to send her note.
