Villoughby Brandon and 1800 century society

The movie captures the devious nature of Villoughby when he hides the flowers on his back when meeting Brandon and Sir John. This is not a suitor who openly will present his intentions. He prefers to work undercover in a direct, effective but legally non-comitting manner. We see Villoughby enwading Marianne and the familys privacy . Cutting her hair, kissing her hair, making lowe to the chimney - but always stepping down from doing the actual commitment. Col Brandon on the other hand do not hide the flowers, calls on visits as soon as the Dashwoods are in town, helps Elinor when helps is needed. In short behaving like an honest suitor as well as not just a civil person. He is putting his credibility, resources and respectability at their disposal.
