One more thought on Mrs. John Willoughby

I forgot one other thing. Willoughby's aunt restore's Allenham to him after his marriage because he has married a woman of (and I may have this word wrong) quality. Imagine the character of a woman being so good, or intelligent, or classy that the aunt overlooks W's really bad behavior and restores to him his inheritance! We have very little to go on about Sophia other than W's descriptions, but this is fairly good evidence that he was misrepresenting her.
