Re: Even More Consequences From A Call - Chapter 23

I did not expect the scene to create such strong negative feelings.

What I had Anna say was:

Quote

“I heard William and Mr. Hurs talking and I member bout Miss Bingley. She is a mean lady! She made her own sister die!” Anna practically screamed.

In Chapter 12, Charles Bingley said:

Quote

“How can you think that? The coroner ruled the death was accidental, however, he did say you helped contribute by causing Louisa to become unbalanced,” Charles said bluntly.

We could argue semantics as to whether or not Anna's statement is slander, but even Charles admitted Caroline had some blame in the matter.

Anna is only five years old and at the time she was genuinely frightened. There is also the fact that Anna is the daughter of a tenant farmer, not that of a gentlewoman who has lived in Meryton her entire life. Her personality would be well established, similar to the way the neighbours ignored/overlooked Mrs. Bennet's improprieties.

Yes, her statements could possibly cause issues, but they would not carry nearly the weight if said by an adult or a teenage gentlewoman. Previously she kept her comments to relative privacy (on a country lane, in a carriage, etc). At the time of her public outburst at church, Darcy/Elizabeth were openly courting and Hurst/Jane had an unofficial understanding.

Do not worry, Anna will not turn out wild.
