Miss Elizabeth Bennet of Elegance of Fashion is hosting a Period Drama Advice Event. I saw the second letter from Edward Ferrars and decided to see how I could answer it. Here’s my letter.
Dear Mr. Ferrars,
Not for the world would I advise you in accepting any of the women who you mentioned in your letter (I thought it was a very nice letter and just the right length). Even though I will not advise you, for you must make up your own mind, I must say that I think it a general rule that if a man doubts whether he should marry a woman he should not. But please do not imagine that I want to influence you – I merely wish to give my thoughts on the subject.
