John Dashwood's occupation and yearly income
Posted by Monique on January 02, 1998 at 21:52:41:
Besides the amount of money John Dashwood had as a result of his inheritance(s) and his wife Fannie's value, can anyone speculate as to how much he would earn in a year? I don't recall reading about it in the book.
Also, I don't recall reading what his occupation is. Can any of you enlighten me on this, or perhaps speculate?
(I feel sort of sorry for him, because as Austen writes in S&S, I believe he would have been a better man had he married a more pleasant sort of woman.)
