in consequence of the missive, and poor Miss Wilmot, penned by Carey
2.) The engagement is broken off and I seem to recall her being in favor of the breakup.
3.) Thornhill comes to the Primrose house, hints around that he's getting ready to make a (legitimate) offer for her hand, but he talks about how ugly she is (would as soon look for a fiance under a lamp-post at the Chapel of St. Somebody...). The girls are still laughing and Dr. Primrose allows this. Very unChristian for a clergyman and family!
4.) Next we have her meeting up with Dr. Primrose and still being madly in love with George. Now, considering how addle-pated this man is, I'm not sure whether Miss Wilmot is still in love with George, or if this is yet ANOTHER figment of Dr. Primrose's imagination. I'm tempted to believe it's true, especially as Thornhill makes effort to get George out of the country immediately.
5.) Now George is gone to service, and Miss Wilmot is running around the countryside with her attendants having the banns read at the church so she can marry Thornhill.
6.) Dr. Primrose sends Moses to warn Miss Wilmot and her aunt and uncle, but it seems to come to no avail.
This is one hapless chick! She doesn't seem to have the wherewithall to affect anything in her life. She seems to be just another victim waiting for Thornhill to determine her fate.
