Elizabeth soon perceived that, though this great lady was not in the commission of the peace for the county, she was a most active magistrate in her own parish, the minutest concerns of which were carried to her by Mr. Collins; and whenever any of the cottagers were disposed to be quarrelsome, discontented, or too poor, she sallied forth into the village to settle their differences, silence their complaints, and scold them into harmony and plenty.
But lack of mention will not convince me, however: there is silence on whatever good Bingley, Elizabeth, Mr. and Mrs. Bennett, Sir William, even angelic Jane do the poor, and they all give us reason to think that they might have such duties.
