The season of 1814 was an especially glittering one. Following the negotiations for peace with France (although not Napoleon) in February, and the invasion of Paris in March, and the exile of Napoleon to Elba in April, London put on fireworks and celebrations for the peace.
The Emperor of Russia and the King of Prussia joined the Regent for a fortnight of celebrations and a grand procession through the people in June. Cassandra visited Henry at the time, and Jane wrote a letter warning her about "running after the King of Prussia" - Henry actually got to attend a ball at Whites to celebrate.
With the important ceremonies and speeches that Sir Walter would be imperiously called upon to represent the country at, and all that baronet blood for Elizabeth to hunt down, I doubt nothing less than Mr Shepherd refusing to send any more cash, or a bailiff at the gates, could induce them to leave early.
