... Amy, that would be so revolting, I'm glad Fanny was respectful inspite of the 'Norris factor she was constantly subjected to. I cannot recall her once not 'obeying' except for the Lover's vows instances - that really showed poor judgement on her aunt's part ( in those days, I guess) I wonder if Lover's Vows is considered too 'offensive' a play to stage at home in this current age?
