A bit later we have Frank venting his irritation at rushing late to the party in the heat, and feeling he must leave again very quickly (having briefly seen "one"--Jane-- leaving early).
And how well JA expresses the frustrated comments, snatches of words separated only by dashes; we can almost hear the shortness of breath in those who had anticipated ease and relaxation, and had found heat and exertion.
