Yes, Bertha would have opposed Archie anyway, but she wouldn't have known about him if he hadn't written to Gladys. Of course that letter shows that Archie is no schemer, unlike Oscar. And because Archie didn't abandon Gladys when Mr Russell's ruin was rumored (Archie is in banking, so he couldn't help to learn the rumors), he obviously cares for Gladys, not her dowry (if the Americans have such?) and inheritance. Still, the wise course would have been to keep the relationship secret and wait for a few years. If they had been constant in their love and Gladys had been able to oppose her mother and declined "better" offers, Archie would have won her in the end. 2 Link to comment
