in consequence of the missive, GR: Isolated Elinor, penned by Cheryl
] "In Colonel Brandon alone, of all her new acquaintance, did Elinor find a person who could in any degree claim the respect of abilities, excite the interest of friendship, or give pleasure as a companion."
] She is certainly not going to have much rational conversation with Sir John, Lady Middleton or Mrs. Jennings - or Willoughby, for he is too wrought up in Marianne. How she must be missing the reasoned discourse she enjoyed with Edward, and how pleased I am that she is able to develope a friendship with Col. Brandon. But she does seem to me to be very lonely at times...
I don't think her situation has changed much since even before her introduction to Edward. To whom would she have been able to have as friend and companion before? I suspect that Elinor would enjoy the company of those who came her way, but I don't think that she counted on it.
