@ T A Weaver - why damn Sir Phillip. Robert didn't have to listen to him. He could have listened to the family doctor, as Cora urged him to. But Robert is so, so status conscious, he had to listen to the society doctor. He didn't want to hurt his feelings, he said. No worry about hurting the feelings of the doctor who has attended the family for years. Or thinking Sybil's husband needed to be consulted for his opinion. What a twit Robert is!
