"Mr. Bingley arrived. Mrs. Bennet, through the assistance of servants, contrived to have the earliest tidings of it, that the period of anxiety and fretfulness on her side might be as long as it could. She counted the days that must intervene before their invitation could be sent -- hopeless of seeing him before. But, on the third morning after his arrival in Hertfordshire, she saw him from her dressing-room window enter the paddock and ride towards the house.
It seems that Lizzy acted very confident of herself and pitied Jane for the embarrassment of the situation, but she didn't suspect that she will be in the same situation ,if not worst.
The second is :-
"Miss Bennet, there seemed to be a prettyish kind of a little wilderness on one side of your lawn. I should be glad to take a turn in it, if you will favour me with your company."
"Go, my dear," cried her mother, "and shew her ladyship about the different walks. I think she will be pleased with the hermitage.".
Here Mrs. Bennet seems that she wants to get rid of 'her ladyship',like geting rid of an annoying goat and ask to take her outside to ramble. :-D
