"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."
Too many times it had been discussed that Lady C is very cruel and selfish but from the above passage , I see that she is thoughtful and attentive. I know some of you will say that this is a show off manner or to display her power and commands over the poor people, but because I am Janes type who find excuses to all kind of people, I think LC has something good inside her heart.
