in consequence of the missive, Marriage as cure-all, penned by Line
But let's look into the final conditions of this marriage-cure-all (LOL). Sir William is specific, "This young lady, thy wife, shall be put in possession of... that fortune... and from her tenderness alone thou art to expect any extraordinary supplies for the future". Olivia holds the purse-strings and unties them according to her "tenderness". I, personally, think that she makes her husband dance to her pipe all right. :-) From Ch. 32: Mr and Mrs Thornhill actually live separately (he with a "melancholy relation"); "my eldest daughter, however, still remembers him with regret; and she has even told me, that when he reforms she may be brought to relent".
As for not warning Miss Wilmot, I agree. Did they (Mrs Primrose certainly!) take offence at her not marrying George, maybe?
