in consequence of the missive, Mrs. Grant, penned by Stephanie
like beauty, or anything else that is subjective. Mrs Grant seems to have a great capacity for it. Unselfish, but not idealistic, a good and practical manager, wise in society ways, cheerful and clever in soothing ill-humour in others. I rather think that she doesn't yearn for something else, but makes the best with what she has. We can look at her more or less like Lady Bertram: here is a woman who wasn't a beauty but still married well. :) Her resources for happiness are in herself, not her circumstances.
