"Well, well, and so Mr. Bingley is coming down, sister" (for Mrs. Phillips first brought her the news). "Well, so much the better. Not that I care about it, though. He is nothing to us, you know, and I am sure I never want to see him again. But, however, he is very welcome to come to Netherfield, if he likes it. And who knows what may happen? But that is nothing to us. You know, sister, we agreed long ago never to mention a word about it. And so, is it quite certain he is coming?"
Sounds so much like the youngest Bennet sisters, with just as much sense! But Mrs Phillips is certainly a useful bearer of news -- today she would be on the phone constantly, either talking or texting everything she hears to her sister. :-)
