A child on the watch, came towards them to beg; and Miss Bickerton, excessively frightened, gave a great scream, and calling on Harriet to follow her, ran up a steep bank, cleared a slight hedge at the top, and made the best of her way by a short cut back to Highbury. But poor Harriet could not follow. She had suffered very much from cramp after dancing, and her first attempt to mount the bank brought on such a return of it as made her absolutely powerless; and in this state, and exceedingly terrified, she had been obliged to remain. Chp 39
I would so much love to see this scene in an adaptation. I find the mental picture very funny. Miss Bickerton histerically screaming, leaping the hedge with her long dress and dissapear. Plumb Harriet unfit and in a cramp trying to jump it too. I know it must have been scary for poor Harriet, but the way JA writes it is just so funny!
