In Mansfield Park, Fanny Price struggles with less than charitable feelings toward Mary Crawford throughout the novel because she is jealous of the time and attention Edmund gives her. As Edmund becomes increasingly interested in Miss Crawford, Fanny is frequently displaced and forgotten: When Miss Crawford needs a horse to ride, she’s given Fanny’s mare; when Miss Crawford wants to walk farther at Sotherton, Fanny is left behind on a bench; and when Miss Crawford goes to the piano to sing, Edmund leaves Fanny’s side to follow.
Incline us Oh God! to think humbly of ourselves, to be severe only in the examination of our own conduct, to consider our fellow-creatures with kindness, & to judge of all they say & do with that Charity which we would desire from Men ourselves.
