in consequence of the missive, The Proposal, penned by Cheryl
My favorite bit, though, has always been (when Mr. Collins lists his reasons for marrying) "and thirdly -- which perhaps I ought to have mentioned earlier, that it is the particular advice and recommendation of the very noble lady whom I have the honour of calling patroness."
Isn't that what any woman wants to hear as a potential husband's most important reason for marrying?
Can I have two favorite bits? (This is such a great scene that it's impossible to choose just one.) I also love Mr. Collins' closing salvo, after Lizzy has unequivocally refused him: "You are uniformly charming!" cried he, with an air of awkward gallantry; "and I am persuaded that, when sanctioned by the express authority of both your excellent parents, my proposals will not fail of being acceptable."
