Isn't it great how you can read these books scores of times and still notice something that went by you another time. This time through MP I've noticed the bit in ch 44 where Fanny finally gets exasperated with Edmund's self-deception re Mary Crawford:
"She was almost vexed into displeasure, and anger, against Edmund ... 'He is blinded, and nothing will open his eyes, nothing can, after having had truths before him so long in vain.- He will marry her, and be poor and miserable... "So very fond of me!" 'tis nonsense all. She loves nobody but herself and her brother. Her friends leading her astray for years! She is quite as likely to have led them astray'..."
