I think Mr. Bennets here wants to prove his theory about Mr. Collins that he is not a sensible man.
"He must be an oddity, I think," said she, "I cannot make him out. There is something very pompous in his style. -- And what can he mean by apologizing for being next in the entail? -- We cannot suppose he would help it if he could. -- Can he be a sensible man, sir?"
"No, my dear; I think not. I have great hopes of finding him quite the reverse. There is a mixture of servility and self-importance in his letter, which promises well. I am impatient to see him."
But what I couldn't understand why he has great hopes of finding him silly.?
