in consequence of the missive, GR: it's not exactly the same thing, penned by Kresel
You don't think Willoughby's regret in his leavetaking was genuine? Whatever else my feelings for him, I do believe he was sincerely upset to go and didn't wish to. And I think JA wanted us to think he was as well.
"...his countenance shewed that he strongly partook of the emotion which overpowered Marianne."
He is clearly suffering under a strong emotion here. Edward was more stoic in his leavetaking, but neither of them wanted to leave, imo.
