in consequence of the missive, clarifying being a second born, penned by manal
in her family, so I'm sure it was an inside joke between her and Cassandra, but I have no documentation on this, so perhaps we should move to Austentations. In fairness, note how often the eldest daughter was described as beautiful (Jane Bennet, Maria Bertram, Elizabeth Elliot, but not Elinor Dashwood).
