When Elizabeth arrives in Hunsford, we are told that "Mr. Collins would have led them round his two meadows". Obviously, JA was making a joke either about the smallness of Mr. Collins' property, or the boringness of what he wanted to show everyone, but what was the significance of the two meadows in general? What were they used for? I don't believe the Collinses have a farm or a carriage, so it wouldn't be to pasture the horses. Would the pig or the chickens be kept there?
