persuasion chapter 15

it had originated in misapprehension entirely

bath—kellynch hall, uppercross, capt wentworth and the musgroves have all disappeared . . . but that nothing still exerts a ghostly presence.  those memories shared by anne and those who have read the previous chapters are not mentioned explicitly; sir walter and elizabeth “had no inclination to listen” to anne’s reflections being much to busy talking about the new furniture and how “every body was wanting to visit them”.  sir walter, elizabeth and lady russel love it in bath while anne “anticipat[es] an imprisonment of many months”.

there is, however, one feature of bath not to sir walter’s liking: “the worst of Bath was, the number of its plain women”.  sir walter estimates that you see only one pretty face “followed by thirst, or five and thirty frights”.
