He, who had ever boasted of being an Elliot, and whose feelings, as to connection, were only too strict to suit the unfeudal tone of the present day.
Austen signals in Persuasion her awareness of that change by having the self-serving William Elliot boast (disingenuously, as we discover later) of his pride in his family connections, family title, and family estate, a pride "too strict to suit the unfeudal tone of the present day!" (150).
Nothing makes this (unfeudal) bifurcation of the economic and the political clearer than its coincidence with the "particularly striking innovation" of an inner dream.(80)
