in consequence of the missive, he had a good deal of curiosity as to the event of an evening, penned by Stephanie
They found Mr. Bennet still up. With a book he was regardless of time; and on the present occasion he had a good deal of curiosity as to the event of an evening which had raised such splendid expectations. He had rather hoped that all his wife's views on the stranger would be disappointed; but he soon found that he had a very different story to hear. (Chapter 2)
It seems to me Mr. Bennet hopes his wifeís reaction to disappointment will be amusing. Had she the right story of woe to tell I suspect he had just the right questions at hand to tease her about it until his desire for amusement is sated. I donít think Mr. Bennetís hope his wife is disappointed rates high on the nice-o-meter. (;D)
