  1. Lady Russell tries to persuade Anne to accept William Elliot
  2. Anne denies the fact they should marry
  3. Lady Russell's influence is double-edged
  4. Eventually, Anne is not persuaded

Lady Russell tries to persuade Anne to accept William Elliot, as he is a good match (?A most suitable connection?). She keeps on repeating that she would be happy as Mr. Elliot's wife (?being happy together?, ? a very happy one?), which should make Anne eager to marry him. However Anne denies the fact they should marry (?but we should not suit?). So Lady Russell is being rather swindling and dishonest here, she uses an undeniable argument : Anne becoming Mrs. Elliot, ?mistress of Kellynch?. Anne loved her mother, she is moved by this idea (?Anne [tried] to subdue the feelings this picture excited?). Many expressions refer to Anne potentially becoming Lady Elliot; such as the anaphora : ?succeeding to all her rights, and all her popularity, as well as to all her virtues?, which emphasis her future access to a comfortable life.
