Didn't you think of Mrs. Bennet accompanying her daughters in the quest for husbands when Galsworthy describes the mothers at Roger's dance for Francie? "Mothers, slowing fanning their faces, watched their daughters and in their eyes could be read all the story of those daughters' fortunes. As for themselves, to sit hour and after, dead tired, silent, or talking spasmodically--what did it matter, so long as the girls were having a good time! But to see them neglected and passed by! Ah, they smiled, but their eyes stabbed like the eyes of an offended swan..." (With beatings in my heart, pains in my side, LOL).
