ch.21: Prettier musings of high-wrought love and eternal constancy could never have passed along the streets of Bath than Anne was sporting with from Camden Place to Westgate Buildings. It was almost enough to spread purification and perfume all the way.
- "The little Durands were there, I conclude," said [Mrs. Smith], "with their mouths open to catch the music, like unfledged sparrows ready to be fed."
ch.22: (Elizabeth's critcism of LR): "She sits so upright!" (I wonder what Elizabeth's posture is like?)
- Anne was really glad to see [Mary and Charles]; and the others were not so sorry but that they could put on a decent air of welcome; and as soon as it became clear that these, their nearest relations, were not arrived with any views of accommodation in that house, Sir Walter and Elizabeth were able to rise in cordiality, and do the honours of it very well.
- Charles about Benwick: "We had a famous set-to at rat-hunting all the morning in my father's great barns; and he played his part so well that I have liked him the better ever since."
- [Mary] had no demands on her father or sister, and her consequence was just enough increased by their handsome drawing-rooms.
It was a struggle between propriety and vanity; but vanity got the better, and then Elizabeth was happy again.
The visitors took their leave; and Charles, having civilly seen them off, and then made a face at them, and abused them for coming...
ch.23: Mrs. Musgrove was giving Mrs. Croft the history of her eldest daughter's engagement, and just in that inconvenient tone of voice which was perfectly audible while it pretended to be a whisper.
But [Anne] could not be long ungrateful; [Charles] was sacrificing an engagement at a gunsmith's to be of use to her.(!)
ch.24: When [Sir Walter] saw more of Captain Wentworth, saw him repeatedly by daylight, and eyed him well, he was very much struck by his personal claims.
Did I miss any?
