Pescud has other qualitive traits that entinced and impressed both Jessie and father.He's quick-witted and won over the Colonel with his anecdotes and show of a steady nerve.The way he presented himself , with his persistent(although clumsy) tracking off the young girl charmed her and convinced her that he was just not fooling around.Moreover, he had a lucrative profession and his prospects were good. 
Outward beauty is not always the reason for winning your love ...although pescud was not a handsome man , he was able to win over his love, jessie  because he has an inner beauty and was a sincere person ..his love was true ..and he did not lie about himself or tried to fool colonel .... his this quality impressed Jessie as well as her father ...
