in consequence of the missive, When Mrs Smith knows in various movie versions, penned by Pete
I never thought it strange that she withheld the information from Anne. Mr. Eliot is not bankrupt (as one the adaptations makes him out to be!); he is a very respectable match- especially for Anne- who is almost off the marriage market. Sure he is mean spirited- but Mrs. Smith probably thought a manís social standing far more important than defects of character.
(Anne would, of course, not agree with any of these things, but Mrs. Smith cannot know that)
