] In the book we are told that Mrs Smith gave Willoughby a chance to redeem himself by marrying Eliza (making an honest woman of her) and keeping the enheritance.
" By one measure I might have saved myself. In the height of her
morality, good woman! she offered to forgive the past, if I would
marry Eliza. That could not be; and I was formally dismissed from
her favour and her house."
I have found the passage you referred to. I guess Willoughby was dumb. (It is painful for me to admit this.) Now a new question. Why is Willoughby so dead-set against marrying Eliza? Are we ever told? I mean if he wasn't going to marry Marianne anyway...
