Ch 20: A few minutes, though as few as possible, were inevitably consumed; and when her own mistress again, when able to turn and look as she had done before, she found herself accosted by Captain Wentworth, in a reserved yet hurried sort of farewell. "He must wish her good-night; He was going; he should get home as fast as he could."
Not the first time I've come across sentences that are in third person that are suddenly in quotes in this book. Why is that? Can I consider that to be a 19th century typesetting error? Or were they in quotes for emphasis?
