in consequence of the missive, Burke's landed gentry?, penned by Bridget D
First of all, Eliza was in Bath. Maybe fashionable Bath was small too but I doubt that it made a difference. When Willoughby left Bath, I'm sure he left, was long gone by the time Eliza suspected he might not be coming back. He apparently was in Devonshire by way of who knows where. Wouldn't surprise me if he was hiding out there:
Elinor: "You must have known while you were enjoying yourself in Devonshire persuing, fresh schemes, always gay, always happy, she was reduced to the extremest indigence."
I am sure as Willoughby had, from the first, planned to use Eliza only as a mistress, he never divulged Combe Magna, let alone Allenham to her. If he did and any letters ever did reach him, he would not have acknowledged them.
