in consequence of the missive, GR: Conflicting gossip from the Steele's, penned by joe m
Altough Elinor was appalled to find that Anne Steele got her information through eavesdropping, I'm glad Elinor knew the true story before Lucy wrote to her. Though, Elinor would naturally take anything Lucy said with a grain of salt. Heck, a whole salt lick!
But the nerve of that girl - when Edward had offered to set her free now that he had no money and she refused, to turn that around to her offering to set Edward free and him begging her not to! I'm afraid I said a not very nice word when I read that letter. Oh, I really can't stand Lucy.
I heartily sympathize with Elinor and her relief at leaving London. "...she was pleased to be free herself from the persecution of Lucy's friendship." It really has been a persecution. Poor Elinor!
