Mrs. Allen was one of that numerous class of females, whose society can raise no other emotion than surprise at there being any men in the world who could like them well enough to marry them. She had neither beauty, genius, accomplishment, nor manner. The air of a gentlewoman, a great deal of quiet, inactive good temper, and a trifling turn of mind were all that could account for her being the choice of a sensible, intelligent man like Mr. Allen. (Chapter 2)
JA is sometimes severe on her own sex and the hammer falls upon Mrs. Allen; it is appropriately cutting while leaving her a little bit of dignity and very funny. :D It is amazing that JA can be quite hard on a character while pointing out their faults but they can still be seen as agreeable persons. :D
