in consequence of the missive, Chapter 40: the marriage misunderstanding, penned by LouAnn
"Certainly, ma'am, I shall tell Marianne of it; but I shall not mention it at present to anybody else."
"Oh! very well," said Mrs. Jennings, rather disappointed. "Then you would not have me tell it Lucy, for I think of going as far as Holborn to-day."
Would it have consequences to Elinor and Col. Barton? In chapter 29, Elinor is a bit angry with Mrs. Jennings for spreading the gossip about Marianne and Willoughby assumed engagement.
"Indeed, ma'am," said Elinor very seriously, "you are mistaken. Indeed, you are doing a very unkind thing in spreading the report, and you will find that you have, though you will not believe me now."
