|But consider in that case

in consequence of the missive, another sarcastic irony, penned by Nikki N
"...setting aside the jealousies and ill-will continually subsisting between Fanny and Lucy, in which their husbands of course took a part, as well as the frequent domestic disagreements between Robert and Lucy themselves, nothing could exceed the harmony in which they all lived together."
In this case, the "exception" to the harmony immediately precedes the statement of harmony. It seems she's telling the reader that EXCEPT for the jealousies and ill-will they lived in harmony. So yes, in that case the harmony was extremely thin.
