In Chap 49 Edward tells Elinor, "Had my brother given me some active profession when I was removed at eighteen from the care of Mr. Pratt... I am sure it would never have happened [his engagement to Lucy]."
What does Robert have to do with getting Edward a profession? Robert is the younger brother and not even 18. I thought it was the responsibility of the eldest to assist in getting professions for their younger siblings.
