in consequence of the missive, Why Marianne?, penned by Tuyet N
Elinor is not considered past her prime at age 19! Mrs. Jennings makes the assumption because Colonel listens so attentively to Marianne singing and playing the pianoforte on the first evening they meet him (Ch. 7) and on subsequent evenings. Mrs. Jennings has long been hoping to find a very pretty wife for the colonel and the interest he shows in Marianne leads Mrs. J. to declare the colonel is 'very much in love' with her.
